Glass Recycling

A simple cost-effective
service maximising
recycling.

'We see glass as a resource.'

We recycle flat and bottle glass recovered through MRFs, bottle banks and kerbside collections (bring and collect) or through trade outlets such as pubs, clubs and hotels.

If you produce volumes of glass, it's best kept separate and yield from cost savings.

Direct deliveries, skips,roro’s, tipper or walking floor services are available in the Midlands.

Glass recycling for local Authorities or businesses that produce significant volumes.

Our services are simple and cost-effective, achieving total landfill avoidance and maximising sustainability, reducing your waste management costs.

Mid UK recycling works with local authorities and business, acting as an outlet and bulking facility meaning that glass grades including glass bottles for recycling are transported in the most efficient manner with least impact on the environment.

We handle all aspects of the process from collection and quality control of recyclable glass before it's marketed into high quality glass cullet remanufacturing or aggregrate grade products.

UK wide service area

Our collection fleet of over 60 vehicles, provides a full range of waste containers, including all skip sizes, roro's, tippers and walking floors.

Once the glass has been processed, the resultant cullet is used in the manufacture of flat glass, fibreglass for insulation and for making new bottles and jars. Emerging applications include the use of glass in aggregates for the construction of roads and car parks, water filtration, and abrasives.

Glass is clearly a valuable and common packaging material for food, drink and many other everyday and items. Glass is also one of the few materials that retains all its qualities no matter how often it is recycled. It is therefore important to recycle as much if not all the glass bottles and jars that are consumed in the home and in pubs, clubs and restaurants. Flat glass, used in buildings and vehicles, can also be recycled.
