Crockery glass or window glass (flat glass) can’t be recycled in your mixed recycling bin.

This is because they are made out of a toughened glass containing chemicals that can’t be recycled with your glass bottles and jars. These type of glass does not melt at the same temperature as bottles and jars. If it enters the glass recycling process, it can result in new containers being rejected.

Crockery glass can be disposed of at your local recycling centre or in your general waste bin.

Please do not put crockery glass into glass recycling banks. They are for bottles and jars only.
