Prepare & Store

Rinse then store used glass in your strong, all-weather boxes. Our boxes are made from recycled plastic to support our efforts to be as green as possible.

Collection Day

We'll send you a helpful reminder the day before collection to make sure you have your box of glass ready. We'll collect the glass from your doorstep and take it to be recycled, leaving behind the empty box, ready for the next month of glass.

Currently we pick up across Dundee, Fife, Perthshire, Aberdeenshire & Glasgow. We also collect from many more smaller locations in the surrounding areas.

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.

We dispose of the glass we collect at a registered recycling facility via the Binn Group.

It is £15 for the first collection (this includes the cost of your box), after this it is £5 per month.

We prefer to take payment through the secure payment platform on our website but can make exceptions if required.

Kind words from our customers

I am not afraid to say I hate standing the process of taking all the bottles to the recycling point, for a few pounds a month it saves me the hassle and the embarrassment!

We have a young family and busy jobs and simply do not have the time so for us it is all about convenience.

Both my parents are elderly and the service is perfect for them as they do not get out and about easily.
