Disposable Gloves

Disposable gloves

Guidance

Plastic gloves should go in the general waste bin. This is partly because they are ‘personal waste’ so could pose a health risk to others, but also because they are made from a thin elasticated plastic which is not easy or cost-effective for us to recycle. TerraCycle has a number of drop-off points where disposable gloves can be recycled. See their website page for more information.
