Quick Reminder On Glasán Recycling

Glasan Waste Management System

We ask our students to embrace every small but necessary action required towards a greener planet. We seek full co-operation from all residents to ensure our success.

There are 7 Waste Management Centres dotted about the Glasán site; with a 2-bin system comprising of: 

  • General Waste (Red Bin) – All black bag material (Non-recyclable i.e. food waste).
  • Clean Dry Recyclables (Green Bin) – Paper, Plastic, Tetra, Steel Tins, and Aluminium Cans

Note: Glass recycling centre is also located on site. 3 bottle bins are provided for green, clear and brown glass.  Please ensure that you separate your glass accordingly.

We operate a 2 bin system in each house.  Cream bin is for the dry recyclables, there is no need to put a black bag in this bin as these items for recycling can be disposed of directly into the large 1100L recycling bin. A sticker detailing what can be recycled is on this bin for your information.

The 2nd grey bin is for your general waste and requires a black bag.

Please ensure materials are clean and dry for recycling, you may need to rinse out cartons, bottles, cans etc before placing them for recycling.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTAMINATE BINS. This can lead to the entire bin being rejected for recycling.

We reached an all time low recycling statistic on site in January 2011 @ 15% – we had been operating around the 30% mark prior to this.

Let’s aim to get back to the 30% recycling for the remaining months.

We like to think we are ever improving the site for the good of our residents and our planet.  Thanking you in advance for your co-operation, Glasan Management Team
