Glass Recycling & Disposal

At Recycling Services we are a market leading glass recycling company. Committed to innovation and quality, we offer an unrivalled range of glass recycling services to businesses all over the UK.

How Does Glass Bottle Recycling Work?

The recycling process involves removing the labels, melting the glass and reforming it into new glass. Once the glass arrives at the recycling centre, it is cleaned, separated based on colour and broken down into smaller pieces through crushing. The crushed pieces are sometimes mixed with other raw materials and turned it into new glass.

This process is known as re-melt, and can be repeated over and over again. Currently only half of the glass collected for recycling in the UK is re-melted. The remainder is used in other applications such as aggregate in road construction or in fiberglass insulation manufacture, some may be landfilled. None of these options offer the same environmental benefits as re-melt.

Why Do You Need A Glass Recycling Company?

Glass is one of the easiest packing materials to segregate for recycling. Infinitely renewable, glass is 100% recyclable with no loss in quality. Dramatically reducing the strain on raw materials used in the manufacturing process, glass recycling preserves approximately 1.3 tonnes of raw materials. Preventing these from being sent to landfill, glass recycling also saves on energy as well.

With a reliable glass recycling company such as Recycling Services you can ensure you get the most out of this valuable waste stream. Experts in hassle-free glass waste collection, we can confidently offer affordable waste management solutions for all businesses and industries.

Did you know? For every tonne of recycled glass melted in the reproduction process, approximately 315kg Carbon Dioxide is saved, helping to reduce emissions overall.*

Save With Glass Recycling Services

Glass constitutes a large proportion of general waste, especially in the hospitality industry. Through reducing the amount of glass sent to landfill, you can make a huge difference in the amount of landfill tax you pay.

Glass recycling can be used to make new bottles and jars for commercial and domestic use. If glass recycling is not a practical solution, the glass will be recovered and reused as aggregate, in line with the waste hierarchy.
