Household Kitchenware (ceramics, glass, porcelain etc)

Household Kitchenware (ceramics, glass, porcelain etc)

Environmental Issues

Drinking glasses, ceramics, plate glass (window panes) and oven-proof glass and pyrex can not be recycled via your kerbside recycling services because:

  • they are toughened glass and melt at a higher temperature than normal glass bottles and jars
  • as little as 5 grams of this non-acceptable glass per tonne can result in one tonne of valuable glass going to landfill
