Safety First - Broken glass is a health and safety hazard. All broken glass should be properly contained prior to disposal in the recycling caddie.
Wash - Before disposing of your unwanted glassware please make sure that it is empty and does not contain any food or liquid residues.
Glass Caddies are located predominantly in kitchens and laboratory areas.
The University’s cleaning and light duty staff will monitor the kitchen Glass Caddies on a daily basis. When the caddies are full the contents will be taken outside to the 240L wheelie bins for collection by the University’s waste management contractor. These bins are labelled Glass.
The external 240L glass waste containers are collected weekly by the University’s waste management contractor and transporetd to their recycling facility in Linwood.
For more information on what happens once glass leaves the University please visit the What Happens to Our Waste? webpage.
