Glass Recycling

Glass recycling has many benefits for the Environment. For example, did you know that most of the glass containers you see on supermarket shelves has likely been around for more than 20 years through continuous cycles of reclamation?

The bottle that you buy today could have been a jar 2 years ago or a glass ornament 15 years ago.

Glass is one of the easiest waste streams to recycle so it makes sense to add this to your Environmental Recycling portfolio.

What is glass waste?
Bottles, jars, drinking glasses, windows, panels, lenses, and more.

Is glass fully recyclable?

Yes, absolutely as long as it is not permanently contaminated with non-recyclable or dangerous hazardous chemicals.

How many times can glass be recycled?

Currently glass has an infinite recycling scope, meaning it can be recycled again and again as long as it is sent for recycling when it becomes waste.

Can I mix my glass bottles and jars with glass from the building windows?

Whilst both glass types are recyclable, the treatment of each I different and cross contamination will prevent certain glass types completing the 360-degree cycle. Always try to separate these.

Can you collect from multiple sites around the UK?

We can offer ad-hoc on-off collections and arrange ongoing regular waste services throughout the UK.

Do you provide paperwork that meets with current UK legislation?

Yes, we provide Waste Transfer notes and Hazardous Waste Consignment Notes subject to collection type. This information is permanently available for you to view and download on our customer portal.

How easy to access and use is your customer portal?

Extremely simple to use, we have recently carried out a survey (December 2022) on the ease of use and accessibility of our portal amongst over 2000 customers and we didn’t receive a single negative comment. The feedback received was a mix of 4 and 5 stars.

How do I arrange regular and ad-hoc collections?

Regular collections are arranged at the outset of your agreement and are logged on to our customer portal with a start and end date. You will then be able to view the agreed collection dates during the entire service. Ad-hoc collections can be arranged via our customer portal, email or the trusted way of phoning in to our customer services team who will then arrange the service quickly and efficiently.

We had great difficulty contacting our current/previous provider whenever there was an issue and had very long waiting times. We felt that we were not valued customers. How is your customer services rated?
