When your child took part in the glass forever today he or she learnt wy all the family's used glass jars an dbottles shold be recyled.

It's great if you're already recyling all your glass bottles and jars, but if you're not, your child will need your help to carry out this recyling. 

Recycling glass is easy if your local council provides a kerbside collection - all you have to do is put your glass bottles and jars in the container that the council provides.
