Recycling in Ballarat changed in 2019 and our recycling company is unable to take glass to recycle. To keep recycling glass, we have a local contractor who can recycle glass for us. To recycle your glass, you will need to keep glass out of the yellow-lidded kerbside recycling bins and take your glass recycling to a Pass on Glass site in Ballarat. Please remove the lids and, if possible, labels off all glass bottles and jars before taking them to a Pass on Glass site.
Where are the Pass on Glass sites?
It is FREE to take your glass to any of the Pass on Glass drop-off sites, located at:
