The Netherlands needs hundreds more glass recycling bins, the inspectorate for the ministry of the environment ILT has said.

Businesses are required by law to recycle 90% of their glass packaging but have been falling short of the norm, despite several warnings, the ILT said.

If the packaging industry does not install another 800 glass recycling bins before the end of 2021 it will be fined €7,000 for every missing bin.
