Proper Glass Bottle Disposal: What to Do When the Recycling Bubbles are Full

2023-12-21 05:00:00

Many of us will again this year have a drink on New Year’s Eve. The days that follow are often the same story. We have to go to the bubbles to drop off our glass bottles. And often, at this time, they are already full when we arrive. Do I have the right to place my waste next to the bubbles? Robert wonders.

The answer is no, obviously. The bottles that you place on the ground are then considered waste. And it is punishable by a fine which can go up to several hundred euros. This is considered illegal dumping and therefore an environmental offense.

Several hundred tonnes of glass are collected each year in Wallonia, around glass bubbles.

So, what should you do with your bottles if the bubbles are already full?

It seems trivial, but go see the next one, come back the next day, or call the intermunicipal office to let them know that it needs to be emptied.
The waste intercommunal companies are responsible for emptying them regularly, several times a week.

Finally, some tips on how to live:

Do not throw away your glasses before 7 a.m., or after 10 p.m. Breaking glass makes noise, and it disturbs local residents, think about their sleep.

I also remind you that you must throw away your glasses without caps or lids.
