At The Bottle Genies we believe in recycling responsibly and ecologically, this means all the glass we collect in Scotland is recycled in Scotland and then turned back into new glass products in Scotland.


After we uplift boxes of mixed glass we deposit them in our glass storage bays located throughout Scotland. From here we use a local transportation companies to deliver the glass to Viridor’s Glass Recycling Facility in Motherwell to be cleaned, sorted and processed into green, brown and clear glass cullet. This cullet is then transported back to O-I (The Glass Works) in Alloa to be used in the production of brand new glass bottles.
