Although there are many different types of glass, only a few types of glass is recycled. I use glass bottles, such as wine or sake bottles, or window glass to make recycled jewellery.
My jewellery is made of:
- Pale Blue - Recycled wine glass bottle
- Olive - Recycled Japanese sake bottle
- Blue - Recycled Japanese sake bottle
- Brown - Recycled beer bottle
- Green - Recycled beer bottle
- Light Yellow - Recycled window glass
What is the glass waste?
Only glass bottles and jars can be placed into the glass recycling bin or co-mingled recycling bin. Drinking glasses, ceramics, plate glass window panels and oven-proof glass have a different melting temperature to glass bottle and. Cannot be recycled.
What goes in the glass or comingled recycling bin?
Glass bottles (brown, green and clear)
Window or window screen glass
Light globes & tubes
