Why should my business recycle its glass?

Glass RecyclingThere are many reasons why it is beneficial for your business to recycle the glass waste it creates.  First and foremost, the separate storage of glass waste will become a legal requirement from 1 January 2015.  This means that all businesses and organisations in Manchester will be committing a criminal offence if they do not ensure that glass is separated into its own waste stream so that it can be recycled.

However, aside from ensuring you comply with the law, there are other reasons to make sure that your business recycles the waste glass it creates.

Recycling glass is good for your business because it allows you to reduce your waste disposal costs significantly.  Committing glass to landfill sites is costly as the use of landfill sites is heavily taxed by the government.  The larger the volumes of wast your business sends to landfill, the more it will be taxed. Through adopting a zero landfill waste approach and recycling glass, you can avoid these heavy taxes, cutting costs and ensuring you do not unnecessarily send waste ot landfill.

The environmental benefits of recycling glass are also considerable.  Through recycling its glass waste, your business can increase its sustainability and reduce the environmental impact of its waste.


We can offer you the hassle-free service your business needs to efficiently recycle its glass waste.  Our experts can offer you a comprehensive waste audit, we can provide you with the bins you need to separately store glass waste, and we can offer you tailored collection services to meet your requirements.
