Communal glass recycling

In March 2020, the City of port Phillip began kerbside and communal glass recycling trials exploring the use of glass recycling across the municipality.

Glass recycling trials

Council concluded the kerbside glass recycling trial in October 2020.

Following our successful communal glass recycling trial last year, council has extended and expanded the communal component. We hope you will take advantage of the 660-litre communal glass recycling bins in your area to dispose of glass bottles and jars.

Glass materials, when broken, can contaminate other materials when mixed with recyclables. Glass is 100 percent recyclable, and the most effective way to optimise glass recycling is to maintain material separation.

All glass collected is recycled at our local processor where it is either used in construction or turned into other glass materials in Victoria.
