There are lots of locations in Reading where you can take common items to be recycled. For example you can take glass bottles and jars, textiles and shoes to recycling banks. You can take carrier bags and batteries to larger supermarkets.
You can now put any colour glass into any bottle bank. The glass will be mechanically sorted by lasers when it is taken to the recycling facility, making glass recycling easier, quicker and more efficient.
You can use the re3cyclopedia search tool to find your nearest recycling location. Just type the item into the search box, such as ‘glass bottle’ or ‘carrier bag’.
