The materials accepted at the bottle banks sites are
Clear Glass, Brown Glass and Green Glass
Please bring bags and boxes home for reuse/recycling where possible. Please try not to use the bottle banks at night if the banks are located in a residential area.
By recycling glass, you are helping to conserve a raw material and reduce the amount of materials going to landfill. During the manufacture of new glass, 40% of the raw material may be in the form of cullet (broken glass). Because of this, less energy is needed to make new glass (recycled glass melts at a lower temperature in the furnace than raw materials so less fuel is required). On average, for every additional 10% of cullet used in the raw material batch, energy costs are reduced by 1% (ENFO, 2003).
Glass is not accepted in the kerbside collection
