We collect 3 different types of glass at the waste recycling point. Glass is 100% recyclable and it is, therefore, important that you separate it from other waste.
Glass waste refers to glass packaging, such as an empty jar of peanut butter, pasta sauces, wine bottles and perfume bottles. Glass is 100% recyclable and therefore it is important to separate it from other waste.
Large glass items and sheets of glass, such as window panes, qualify as waste and should be taken to one of the waste recycling points.
Where can you deposit the glass waste?
You can deposit this glass at special (underground) bottle banks that you can find at shopping centres and large supermarkets in your city. There, you separate the glass into three different colours: green, brown and white (transparent). Are you visually impaired or do you have doubts about the colour of the glass? Then take the glass to the waste recycling point where the staff can help you with the separation.
