How to dispose of Broken and Unbroken Glass
Each local council has different rules about responsible disposal of glass. Your council may even have a separate bin for glass materials.
As a general rule, unbroken glass jars, bottles, and cups can be placed in the kerbside recycling bin - however, for more details always check with your local council.
