Glass Recycling

Glass is used for things like windows, bottles, jam jars and other containers. It can be recycled made into new glass bottles, containers and even used to make new roads!

Don't throw away your empty glass bottles. Recycle them!

In the UK, 1.5 million tonnes of glass bottles are recycled each year. That is a lot of glass that does not go to the rubbish tip. It also saves making new glass from precious raw materials.
