Glass (Bottle & Plate)

Glass disposal with Commercial Recycling

Commercial glass disposal

Glass waste is commonly produced in commercial activities, such as construction projects, renovations, restaurateurs, window companies, automotive industries and more.

It is a business owner’s responsibility to ensure that any commercial glass waste produced is disposed of at a proper trade waste recycling facility, such as with us at Commercial Recycling.

We accept all commercial glass waste for recycling under our ‘zero waste to landfill’ policy. Glass is 100% recyclable, and we commonly recycle it into construction aggregates.

      Tipping waste glass with us

      Businesses, tradespeople or contractors can dispose of waste glass at either of our recycling centres, with no need to book in advance:

      You can expect wide turning spaces and smooth surfacing throughout, meaning that you can bring your waste glass to us in any vehicle.

      Glass tipping prices

      We charge glass disposal at a low minimum weight charge of ¼ tonne, which is calculated onsite with the help of our automated weighbridges. 

      Then, simply pay for the amount of glass you are transporting via credit / debit card, cash or a nett monthly trade account. Contact us to learn more about this option.

      We regularly review our glass disposal prices to ensure we remain competitive. Take a look at our pricelist for the most up to date costs.

      Please note – plate glass and glass bottles have different disposal rates. It is most cost-effective to separate your glass types before disposal, if appropriate.

      Glass bottle disposal

      You can bring your glass bottles / containers. to us for quick, convenient, low cost disposal. As mentioned above, there is no need to book in advance. If you have any questions, please call our friendly team on 01202 331560.

      Plate glass disposal

      We accept plate glass / double glazed glass for recycling. For safety reasons, we do not require our customers to remove the glass from UPVC framing. If you have UPVC frames that need disposal, you can do this on the same visit.

      Please note – you have extra responsibilities to consider if the window frame is coated in any kind of resin / adhesive. Visit our hazardous waste disposal page for more information.

      Commercial glass collections

      If you can’t bring your glass to us, we can arrange to collect it from you. We operate a man and van rubbish collection service that can hold up to 1 tonne of glass waste per trip. Simply let us know your location, and we will arrive onsite and load the van with your waste for you, bringing it back to Commercial Recycling for disposal.

      We can also arrange for larger scale glass collections via our friends at Avon Material Supplies, such as skips or grab lorries. To discuss your collection requirements call us on 01202 331560.
