Buy-back Centres/Entrepreneurs

We encourage you to start your own business collecting glass for recycling. If you are collecting or intend to collect large volumes of glass you can sell your glass to the glass manufacturers. Please note that you would need to register as a vendor with the manufacturers. If you would like their details please click here.

We can assist you with advice and tips regarding running your own buy-back centre.
TGRC can also help you by providing you collection bags or wheelie bins for your glass, gloves and goggles to protect your eyes when crushing glass; however TGRC cannot assist you with transport or financial assistance. Please note that requests for assistance with equipment will be evaluated with each application. Assistance is not guaranteed.
