Glassbag.ie is a new affordable glass collection service aimed at giving residential and businesses an easier option for recycling their glass waste.

Firstly, you need to select the option that best suits your needs. Once you have signed up, you can use an existing storage container or bag (I.e. IKEA, Dunnes, etc) to store your glass. We will then come to collect on the day specified by your EIRCODE and leave with you with one of our glass bags for any future collections that will take place.

Our service is very affordable, and we make it possible to choose options that suit each household best. You can see the pricing options here: https://glassbag.ie/pages/new-pricing-page

You can sign up by navigating to our pricing page (https://glassbag.ie/pages/new-pricing-page) and select ‘Sign Up’ under the plan you want. You will then be redirected to the Checkout page to fill in your details. Please make sure to include your mobile number and EIRCODE when signing up. We will need this information later.

Great! Once Off customers are required to email collect@glassbag.ie with their name, address and order number when they need a collection. We try to organize these collections in line with our normal collection schedule but there is flexibility here.

We will leave you back with a bag and then when you want to use the service again, simply sign up for a Once Off collection (same as before) and use P&DP Discount to save on shipping (and let us know not to ship out a bag). And don’t forget to notify us that you want to be added to the collection list!

We typically will collect glass in each area once a month. We collect from monthly subscribers in accordance with our collection calendar: https://glassbag.ie/pages/glass-bag-collections-monthly-calendar and will also try and schedule Once-Off collections on the same day. This is flexible so please get in touch if have a specific request.

We currently service all of Dublin and we also service areas in Louth, Meath, Kildare and Wicklow. Please get in touch if you need further information on the specific areas we can cover.

Our bags are quite large. It can hold up 15kg of glass which roughly translates into around 60 or so beer bottles and 21 bottles of wine. You don’t need to fill it to the brim but we made it extra big just in-case.

All types of mixed color bottles, jars and other non-broken glasses. Basically, if you would put it in a bottle bank, you can put in your bag.

We made sure that our bags are completely re-usable and so you ideally won’t need another bag. If something happen, please get in touch via info@glassbag.ie .

We will send you a confirmation email after the order is placed with the collection date. Please feel free to get in touch if this does not suit.

Please wash the bottles as much as you can. It will be your bag for the next while so the cleaner the better.

Please get in touch with us at info@glassbag.ie if you wish to cancel the service.

No problem - please get in touch with us at info@glassbag.ie and we will see what we can do.

No worries at all. We charge €2 per month if you want to sign up for the month and €20 per year if you sign up for the year.

That’s okay. Please get in touch with us over at info@glassbag.ieand we will try and arrange a collection as soon as possible!

That is not a problem with Glassbag.ie – you can bring the bag with you to your new home but please make sure to let us know about the change of address. Contact us at info@glassbag.ie
