Entry from British & World English dictionary
A place where used glass bottles may be deposited for recycling.
- Every weekend my husband and I go shopping at the Savacentre and since last year it has been littered with rubbish, the bins are never emptied and there is smashed glass everywhere from the bottle bank.
- All my waste paper is collected by Halton Scout Group, all my glass goes to the bottle bank and all my old clothes go to charity shops or the bank at Salt Ayre.
- There are many half-hearted environmentalists out there who (at least claim they) would like to help, but who at the end of the day can't be bothered to take their glass to a bottle bank.
