Glass bottles

Guidance

Alias
glass bottles

Most glass can be recycled in north London, please just empty and rinse items first.

Items that can be recycled

  • Bottles of any colour
  • Jars with lids removed
  • Non-food glass bottles with lids removed e.g. perfume or aftershave

We only accept these items in your household recycling collection. We do not take other types of glass because they have different melting points to bottles/jars. If glass with different melting points gets mixed with bottle and jar glass, it causes imperfections in the end product.
