Who are we?
Hello there :),
We founded Glass Bag Collection in an effort to help our planet be greener by helping people recycle their glass waste. We often came across situations where people didn’t have the time or means to bring their glass waste over to recycle it.
So here we are with a quick solution to your problems. Whether you are a large family that needs to recycle their glass waste frequently or you want to set up a single pick up, we can cater for you.
What do we do?
We make it easier for you to recycle your glass waste.
All you have to do is:
Step 1: Go to our plans page, and choose the suitable plan for you. We will deliver our large, durable and reusable bags at your door.
Step2: Start filling up the bag with glass waste such as beer bottles, wine bottles, jars and so on.
Step 3: You will receive a monthly date for collection in your area. Simply leave the bag outside the night before and it will be emptied and left back for re-filling.
That’s all! So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!PRICING
Why do we do it?
It's no secret that the Earth is reaching a tipping point from which scientists say we won't be able to come back from.
There is a large amount of waste that ends up in landfills, which our children and grandchildren will have to deal with - it’s simply not acceptable anymore.
This also includes waste that can easily be recycled such as glass. We even asked around to see if people were recycling glass and it quickly became apparent that most of them were not. While many just didn’t have the ability to bring large amounts of glass waste to recycling centres, others didn’t realise the importance of recycling glass in general.
Glass being mixed in with general waste and it's causing havoc in the recycling plants around the country.
Our service ensures that all of this glass waste is being cleaned and processed properly and then re-purposed to make new bottles or be used for other purposes.

Friends of Glass
Friends of Glass is a community which supports everything about glass packaging. In a slightly bigger nutshell, Friends of Glass advocates a lifestyle which includes glass for three main reasons: health, taste and sustainability.
Glass is the only packaging material available that is 100% inert and 100% recyclable. Unlike other packaging that leach chemicals that are hazardous to your health and change the way your food tastes; glass preserves and protects your food without adding anything. Not only that, glass is made from all natural materials and is infinitely recyclable without a loss in quality or purity.
The Friends of Glass community believes that many families and retailers are unaware of these benefits, and are committed to promoting awareness of a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle through glass. We hope to unite people all over the world who support the idea that glass is the preferred and ideal packaging material for not just families – but for the environment as well.
Your choice makes a difference – be safe, be healthy, be smart by choosing glass.LEARN MORE
