Glass
Description

Glass can be recycled indefinitely without compromising quality. It takes less energy to recycle glass than to melt down the original raw materials. Currently, only around a third of all glass packaging is recycled, the rest goes into landfill sites, wasting natural resources.

Recycling facilities can be found at your local supermarket, mini recycling centres, the Household Waste Recycling Centres and kerbside collections (ask your local District or Borough Council for details).

Please do not place Pyrex or sheet glass in your kerbside recycling bin or in the glass recycling bank.
