The following waste is deposited in bins with green lids:
- empty food and drink glass bottles;
- glass packaging of medicines and cosmetics;
- preserved food jars;
- other glass packaging.
Glass packaging needs to be emptied and the caps or corks are removed. Caps are deposited into the packaging collection bins and corks into the black or grey bins.
Glass is a very useful raw material since it can be 100% recycled and reused without a loss in quality. One tonne of waste glass is a replacement for approximately 1.2 tonnes of raw materials and we must not forget the energy saved.
