Laboratory Glass

This includes laboratory ware, pyrex cookware and non-container glass (e.g. flat glass).

Such glass can only be landfilled. Please carry out the following steps before disposal:

1. Ensure that the glass is bagged, boxed and securely taped up.
2. Clearly mark the box “BROKEN GLASS SAFE FOR DISPOSAL”.
3. Then put your box in the external landfill container for your building. If you are unsure which external container is landfill please contact the Assistant Environmental Manager.

Crockery and glass panes cannot be recycled; these items must be treated in the same manner as laboratory glass.
