Glass bottles and jars
Glass is only processed in the UK.
All of your recyclable material that is collected at your kerbside is sorted in Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF) in London. Glass is separated from other recyclable materials and sent to facilities in the UK (Essex, Pontefract, Brentford, Derbyshire, South Yorkshire) where the glass is processed into glass cullet, or pellets. The final product is either used for bottle manufacturing or for aggregate in road construction.
