Drinking Glasses

Hi all

Does anyone know if I can recycle drinking glasses? Can I bring them to the clear bottle bank? Or even put them in the green bin? Thinking it might be a different type of glass.

Thanks

AFAIK you can't put lead glass or stuff like PYREX (doesn't melt easily) , just cheap and cheerful soda glass

Check on your local authority page or https://www.mywaste.ie/

No glass of any type in the domestic recycxling bin- it will contaminate the other materials (and this material goes on aconveyor and is part-sorted by hand).

As the Cpt'n has said, pyrex really messes up the glass recycling process so it definitely needs to be kept out of the recycling banks.

Is there no regulation on the components of glass used so they can be recyclable? Boggles the mind that a drinks bottle can be recycled but a drinking glass can’t.
