Disposal and glass recycling services

Commercial Recycling offers an affordable glass disposal service at each of the local tips it operates in Wimborne, Dorset and Evercreech, Somerset.

Although the sites do not benefit from having an onsite glass recycling plant, Commercial Recycling is able to offer competitive glass disposal rates because of the partnerships the organisation has in place with a number of leading UK glass recyclers.

Types of glass waste we accept

At our recycling centres in Somerset and Dorset we are able to accept various types of glass waste, with the most common being;

  • Mixed glass
  • Plate glass
  • Windows
  • Double glazing glass
  • Windscreens
  • Glass bottles.

How to save money on the disposal of glass waste  

Our lowest glass waste disposal prices are available to the customers who are able to segregate their glass into single types. For example, the charge to tip bottled glass is around 50% cheaper than the equivalent fee to dispose of mixed glass. Therefore, if saving money is an important consideration for you, we would always advise you to remove glass bottles from your mixed glass and tip this waste separately.

It’s also important to note that glass windows still within their frames cannot be tipped as ‘glass waste’ and if not removed from the frame will be charged as general waste, which is more expensive to tip than glass waste.

It’s good to know with regards to windows, that if you do choose to separate the glass from its frame you can also tip the frame at our recycling centres in the same visit.
