You can find details of your nearest glass recycling point (bottle bank) below.

Glass Recycling

West Lothian Council has a number of glass recycling bins around West Lothian.

This collection system ensures that West Lothian Council complies with the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012, which require the collection of glass from householders.

Please remember to consider those living nearby our glass banks and dispose of your glass responsibly and with due consideration.


Reporting Full Glass Recycling Points (Bottle Banks)

Glass Bank Fly Tipping
Should you discover a bottle bank is full or has excess glass waste left beside it, please complete the Glass Collection Enquiries  online form or contact our Customer Service Centre to arrange for it to be emptied/cleared: Call 01506 280000.

If the glass bank you visit is full please:
  • Take your glass to another local glass bank, there is a list below of all West Lothian glass bank locations.
  • Take your glass to your local Community Recycling Centre, locations can be found on the Community Recycling Centres page.
  • DO NOT leave glass on the ground surrounding the glass bank - this takes our crews a long time to tidy up and fills up the collection vehicle quicker, meaning we can't empty other glass banks in the area.
  • DO NOT leave bags, boxes or other waste surrounding the glass banks - this is fly tipping and cannot be collected in our glass collection vehicle.


What can I put in the glass banks?
