Mixed Glass Recycling

What is mixed glass recycling?

At Oxford Direct Services, we can collect mixed glass from various sized containers that have been specially designed for the safe storage and transfer of glass. We work with businesses of all sizes to safely and responsibly recycle glass, delivering first-class customer service that ultimately saves you money.

What can go in your mixed glass recycling?

  • Brown, green and clear bottles
  • Milk bottles
  • Glass jars

What don’t we accept?

Please note that we only accept household glass bottles, and not glass from building waste such as double glazed windows.

What happens to your mixed glass recycling waste?

Over 80% of the glass that is collected in the UK is now used in recycling initiatives throughout the country. Primarily, the glass is used on the manufacture of new jars and bottles.

What types of bins do you need for mixed glass recycling?

We only offer external bins for glass recycling:

  • Our outside 240L bin is suitable for glass only 
240 L
