About DGR

From just £6.00 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 (boxes can be purchased on request).

We currently recycle glass in Aberdeenshire, Dundee, Fife, Perthshire, Clackmannanshire, Stirling & West Lothian.

We collect from all properties (including flats) provided have space to leave their box outside or with unrestricted access during the day.
