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.
Not everything is allowed to go in the bottle banks. Broken windows and glass from mirrors and picture frames must be handed in at the waste recycling point. There is a special container for sheet glass.
What happens to the waste?
Glass is endlessly recyclable without loss of quality. The shards of empty glasses, bottles and jars are processed into glass for the production of new bottles and jars.

- Window glass
- Packaging glass
- Glass oven dishes or other heat-resistant glass
- Porcelain and pottery
- Incandescent and energy-saving lamps, fluorescent tubes
