Close the Loop with Bottle Underground

Glass is the most recyclable material, however, our current glass collection systems are ineffective.
On average 70% of post-consumer glass will end up in landfills, mostly due to contamination. Bottle Underground is committed to innovating and localizing systems for collection, recirculation, recycling, downcycling and upcycling. By maintaining a high-quality collection system, our team is dedicated to reducing waste now and making the best use of glass for our future.


Big party? You don’t have to throw it all away. Commit to greening your event with Bottle Underground services.


Single-stream residential collections in Philadelphia are not giving us peace of mind. Let’s make a difference by sorting glass separately to ensure it gets reused, recycled or even upcycled!


If you want to make more sustainable choices for your business, Bottle Underground is here to help. Offering recycling services and creative alternatives to your glass waste.
