Always in the landfill bin: some glass products

While whole glass bottles and jars can be placed in your yellow recycling bin, other glass products such as windows, mirrors, oven-proof glass (like Pyrex), perfume bottles and deodorant bottles – whether they’re broken or not – need to be placed in your red/blue landfill bin for disposal.

These types of glass are not 'furnace ready' and don't melt at the same temperature as the glass used for bottles and jars, meaning they won’t mix together properly and will cause faults and weaken recycled glass products.

If items are still in good condition, consider donating them or selling them before disposing of them.
