Drinking glasses

Broken drinking glasses should be wrapped securely and placed into your general waste bin. They should not go in the mixed recycling bin.

Donate drinking glasses that are still in a good condition at one of the 18 Renew donation containers which are at recycling centres across Greater Manchester, or take them to a charity shop.

Drinking glasses or wine glasses can’t be recycled in your mixed recycling bin at home. This is because they are made out of toughened glass containing chemicals that can’t be recycled with your glass bottles and jars.
