Glass Recycling Scheme


FENSA have launched a range of material recycling schemes for FENSA Approved Installers to take advantage of. Our extensive list of recycling schemes cover uPVC, Aluminium, Timber, and Glass.

In March, we launched the pilot Glass Recycling Scheme in collaboration with CNC Recycling across the Midlands and North East of England, and following on from that success, we are thrilled to announce the free service will be expanding further.

Where Do You Collect From?


The Glass Recycling pilot scheme was originally available to companies that install windows in the areas of Hull, York, Doncaster, Lincoln, Peterborough, Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby, Wakefield, Bradford, Leeds & Huddersfield.

We’re delighted that the expansion of the scheme means the scheme will now cover Manchester, Liverpool, across to Halifax/Brighouse, down to Stoke and then over to North Wales, Cheshire and areas of Cumbria.

With the additional areas now able to have their uPVC frames and IGUs collected for free, we’re proud the Glass Recycling Scheme is now available to more FENSA Approved Installers than ever before.


  • The collected uPVC frames must be de-glazed as the glass is collected on different vehicles.
  • There must be a minimum of 20 window frames/IGUs for a collection to be made.
  • The IGUs must not be broken and stacked (A frames) ready for collection.


All glass collected as part of this scheme, which can be recycled into clean cullet, is re-used for flat glass processing. A recycling scheme that truly helps the sector drive down its carbon emissions.


What are the Next Steps?
