Frustrated with the pile of used glass that we never found time to recycle, we created Doorstep Glass Recycling to make everyone’s life a little easier. Doorstep Glass Recycling provides a service that its simple, convenient and encourages you to recycle.

For just £4 per month, we collect your glass from your doorstep and take it to be recycled, leaving you with an empty 45L box for the start of the next month.

We currently recycle glass in Dundee, Fife and Perthshire and have just launched our Aberdeenshire service, covering all locations along the A920 from Ellon to Oldmeldrum and south including Westhill, Braemar, Aboyne, Banchory, Stonehaven and Laurencekirk.

We collect from properties that have space to leave their box outside safely or flats that have unrestricted access during the day.

Our local community is important to us and we pledge to give 10% of all profits to the Aberdeenshire North and South Foodbanks – to see some of the support we have provided in our other areas, follow us on social media.

We save you time taking glass to recycling points, save mess transporting it and we are convenient as glass can be bulky and heavy. We also help to protect the environment by ensuring your glass is recycled. We make recycling glass easy for a low monthly cost.

We use Wham Bam 45 litre recycled plastic boxes. They are extremely strong and come with a secure lid so can be stored outside in all weather if required. Dimensions: 49.00 x 39.50 x 32.00 cm. This equates to approximately 30 wine bottles or 45 beer bottles.

Bottles and jars of any colour, e.g. Wine, Beer and Spirits and Jars such as Sauces, Jam etc. Jars that have contained food should be emptied and rinsed. You can also recycle Perfume Bottles and Toiletries too.

Household product glass such as Mirrors, Pyrex, Drinking Glasses and Light Bulbs cannot be recycled and should be disposed of in general waste.

Absolutely, our boxes hold the equivalent of 30 wine bottles so we are perfect for lots of businesses who don’t produce commercial volumes of glass recycling.
