You can recycle glass bottles and jars at more than 40 recycling sites across in North West Leicestershire - or on our kerbside collection service.
Glass needs to be kept separate from plastics, tins and cans, to do this please put them in the other red box (if you have more than one). If you've only got one red box, please order an extra red box.
If you share communal recycling bins, please put glass in your glass recycling bin.
Which plastics can I recycle?
- Glass bottles and jars
- Food remains
- Broken glass
- Pyrex dishes
- Plate glass
- Mirror glass
We can’t recycle the above items because they have a different composition and can’t go through the same process. For example Pyrex is heat resistant and has a different melting temperature to a beer bottle. This can cause imperfections in the new recycled glass.
You can really help by rinsing your glass bottles and jars before putting them in the red box. Please remove any plastic or metal lids and put these in the other red box with your plastic/cans/tins/foil.
Where does it go?
