Bottles and jars (glass and plastic)
Ways to reduce, reuse or recycle glass and plastic bottles and jars.
Buy bigger size products where possible. They last longer and often have refill options available.
- Reuse plastic bottles.
- Use glass jars as storage containers for homemade jam or chutney.
- Glass jars can make decorative tea light holders when painted.
Separate glass and plastic banks are available at most local recycling centres and household waste recycling centres.
- Kerbside collection (where available) - please contact your local district, borough or city council for more information about kerbside collection schemes.
