Glass recycling

All households in Rushmoor have a fortnightly collection of glass for recycling.

Glass recycling

Recycling glass bottles and jars uses a lot less energy than making them from new. It is also really easy to do.

You can use your blue storage box, basket or purple-wheeled bin for all types and colours of glass bottles and jars.

We cannot recycle

  • Lids - please put them in your rubbish bin
  • Pyrex or broken glass - carefully wrap it and put it in your rubbish bin 
  • Drinking glasses - carefully wrap and put them in your rubbish bin

Collecting your glass 

We will empty your glass container every fortnight at the same time as your blue recycling bin. We put the glass into a separate compartment of the recycling collection lorry. To check your collection day, use our In my area feature.

If you don't already have a storage container for your glass and would like to order one, please contact our Customer Services team using the contact details on this page.

You can order extra boxes free of charge if you find you don't have enough room for your glass.

You can also take glass to the many bottle banks across Rushmoor. Please see our bottle banks and recycling points page for more information.

What to do if we don't empty your glass box

If we didn't empty your glass box when it  was due to be emptied, please tell us about a missed collection.

What to do if you don't have a glass box or need a second one

If you don't have a glass box, or you need more than one, please contact our Customer Services team using the contact details on this page.
