Leeds Glass Recycling

Recycling By Design is dedicated to shifting the focus from waste as a weight towards really being a valuable resource, in accordance with the European Waste Framework Directive, and to help customers to significantly reduce waste to landfill.


Glass may be recycled forever without losing any of its properties — this conserves valuable natural resources and also conserves energy and reduces emissions of carbon dioxide.

Working in partnership with local authorities and companies throughout the Leeds and wider Yorkshire, Leeds Waste Management continues to help its customers, large and little, to recycle waste glass, cutting costs and enhancing environmental performance.

Recycling By Design gathers around 80,000 tonnes of glass for recycling each year.
