Duration 0:19 |

Meet Narfis. He's cooking for his grateful but nervous mates. He might not get the recipes right, but he puts all the glass bottles and jars in the yellow lid bin. Good job, Narfis. Let's get it sorted.

Glass bottles and jars can be recycled again and again without losing quality, making it a highly sustainable material.

Some of the common glass household items you can put in your yellow lid bin are:

  • alcohol bottles
  • sauce and jam jars
  • drink bottles
