Did you know you can make some money by collecting glass for recycling?

Thousands of South Africans earn a source of income from collecting waste glass, and selling this valuable packaging to entrepreneurial buy-back centres. Our latest research confirms that there are approximately 50 000 active glass collectors in South Africa.

Within South Africa you can collect waste glass (glass bottles and jars) from local community members, restaurants, bars and shebeens.  Once you have collected this glass you can sell it back to a buy-back centre. The Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) does not buy or sell glass but we can direct you to potential buyers of glass in your area.
