Expansion of the GGF Glass Recycling Scheme – Start Recycling with the GGF Today

Expansion of the GGF Glass Recycling Scheme – Start Recycling with the GGF Today

In recent years, the GGF have successfully launched a number of recycling schemes for Members, across uPVC, Aluminium, Timber, and Glass.

In March, we launched the free pilot Glass Recycling Scheme in collaboration with CNC Recycling across certain areas of the UK, and following on from that success, we are thrilled to announce the service will be expanding to other areas and reaching more of the GGF community.

Where is the Scheme Available?

The pilot scheme was originally available to companies that install windows in Hull, York, Doncaster, Lincoln, Peterborough, Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby, Wakefield, Bradford, Leeds & Huddersfield.

With the expansion of the scheme we’re pleased to announce the scheme will now cover Manchester, Liverpool, across to Halifax/Brighouse, down to Stoke and then over to North Wales, Cheshire and areas of Cumbria.

With these additional areas now able to have their uPVC frames and IGUs collected for free, we’re thrilled the Glass Recycling Scheme now covers a significant portion of England and is now available to more GGF members than ever before.

Collection Rules

  • The collected uPVC frames must be de-glazed as the glass is collected on different vehicles.
  • There must be a minimum of 20 window frames/IGUs for a collection to be made.
  • The IGUs must not be broken and stacked (A frames) ready for collection.

All glass collected as part of this scheme, which can be recycled into clean cullet, is re-used for flat glass processing. A recycling scheme that truly helps the sector drive down its carbon emissions.

Next Steps

If you would like to arrange a collection of your uPVC frames and IGUs then please contact CNC on 01642 983188.

Alternatively, please email and someone will be in touch with you to discuss your collection.
