What are types of glass that can not be recycled?
28th June 2023
In the world of recycling, it’s important to know that not all glass can be recycled. To ensure responsible waste management, it’s crucial to dispose of non-recyclable glass correctly.
Here’s a comprehensive list of glass items that should not be included in your glass recycling bin:
- Glass mixed with other materials;
- Decorative glass;
- Mixed-colour glass;
- Dirty or food-contaminated glass;
- Ceramics or dishware;
- Heat-resistant glass like Pyrex;
- Window glass;
- Light bulbs, computer or television screens, and cathode-ray tubes: These electronic devices contain glass components that require specialised disposal methods. Please refer to local electronic recycling facilities for proper handling.
Although recycling is encouraged, it’s important to remember that not all glass waste types can be recycled. However, whenever possible, opt for recycling to minimise waste and its environmental impact.
Additionally, it’s essential to thoroughly clean and rinse any glass items before recycling them. The cleaner the glass, the better the recycling process, resulting in recycled glass products with the same strength and integrity as brand new ones.
