The Glass Recycling Company Spreads the Word on Glass Recycling in South Africa

The Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) is here to guide you through the ins and outs of glass recycling. They’re passionate about keeping things green and clean, and they want to make sure you’re in the know.

It’s time to step up and take responsibility for our waste.

Glass is a superstar when it comes to recycling. Did you know that glass recycling helps save energy, reduces carbon emissions and is endlessly recyclable? It’s a win-win!

But let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. TGRC is all about glass packaging —the bottles and jars you use for drinks, food, and cosmetics. Whether it’s clear, green, or brown glass, it’s all recyclable!

But wait, not all glass can be recycled the same way and TGRC wants to set the record straight. When it comes to recycling, say no to window glass, crystal drinking glasses, and light bulbs. These don’t play well with the packaging glass recycling process.

So, remember to keep them separate and dispose of them properly to keep the recycling flow smooth and maintain the purity of glass packaging.

Ready to become a recycling champion? TGRC has your back! Just head over You’ll find all the juicy details on sorting your glass and assisting you with the information you need to start a recycling business or just support a local school’s glass recycling efforts.


  • Glass that CAN be recycled in South Africa:
    • Packaging glass, such as bottles and jars for beverages, food, and cosmetics (clear, green, and brown glass varieties)
  • Glass that CANNOT be recycled with packaging glass in South Africa:
    • Windowpanes and windshield glass
    • Mirrors
    • Crystal drinking glasses, glass cookware and ovenware
    • Light bulbs

Remember to separate these types of glass and dispose of them correctly to avoid contaminating the recycling process and ensure the purity of recycled glass packaging.

TGRC is all about creating a greener, more sustainable South Africa. We firmly believe that even the smallest recycling efforts can make a big difference.
