What goes in?

You can put any glass bottle or jar in your black box. Please remove all lids or bottle tops (these can go in your recycling bin). Some examples include:

  • wine and beer bottles
  • food bottles and jars

What stays out?

  • drinking glasses
  • window pane glass
  • ceramics
  • Pyrex
  • crockery
  • light bulbs and thermometers (these can be recycled at your local tidy tip)

If you live in an area without a kerbside glass collection, you can take your glass bottles and jars to a bottle bank.
