About Bottle Alley Glass

Bottle Alley Glass Ltd was set up to create sustainable and beautiful products from waste glass bottles that otherwise would have been destined for landfill.

How does it work?

Well, we take unwanted glass bottles, some of these may have been used, others are unwanted bottles from bottling factories, that as mentioned would have gone for landfill, we sort them into colours, de-label them and then crush them down to cullets. The cullets are then graded to size. Once the cullets are sized we lay them out on flat trays creating patterns and designs – each one different as no two cullets are the same. These sheets are them baked in our kilns to create slabs of really tough glass – tougher than you think, so far we have tried them with 260 kilos of weight on them and they show no signs of stress, so you can be assured of a really quality robust product.

Did you know?

On average, each household in the UK uses 331 glass bottles and jars every year.  Recycling rather than disposing of them would save enough energy to power a computer for five days as well as reducing landfill.

Working for a better world…

Working with charities and social enterprises such as Bottle Rescue in Keighley and St Nicholas Fields in York, at Bottle Alley Glass, we believe in improving the social as well as environmental impact that we have as a business. It all helps to make a better world.
