The City of Ballarat estimates about 700 kilograms of glass has been dropped off each day since the new no-glass recycling regime began last week.
Another 1200kg was dropped off in the first weekend of operation.
While some residents have complained about overflowing skip bins full of bottles and a lack of drop-off points in the north-east of the city, a council spokesperson said they were "encouraged by the enthusiasm of the community".
Where can I drop off my glass in Ballarat?
The Courier visited the seven sites in Ballarat - each is close to a car park.
You'll need to head to the Big W car park - between Big W and Dan Murphy's, there's a loading dock with skip bins outside, and that's where you'll find two bins for glass.
Near the post box, on the southern Stockland car park, there's a glass bin near other skips - right next to the MyCar outlet.
Up on Howe Street, right next to the Miners Rest General Store.
In between the Woolworths loading dock and Ballarat Community Health at the Lucas , you'll find the glass bin on a patch of gravel near the car park.
At the Ballarat Greyhound Racing Club, near the bus stop on Rubicon Street, there's a glass bin on the grass - keep in mind there'll be a lot of buses taking up parks around school times.
Right behind the BP service station on Commercial Street, in the car park that's also accessible from Foodworks and Forest Street.
In the car park at the Midvale Shopping Centre on Geelong Road, check behind the gym - the glass bin is next to other skips.
The Gillies Street transfer station is also open from 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 4pm on public holidays and weekends.

Already, the drop-off point plan is being fine-tuned, with daily inspections underway - in a statement, council confirmed all sites were inspected multiple times at the weekend.
No material has yet been sent to the Australian Paper Recovery facility in Melbourne. A spin past the seven drop-off sites - not counting the Gillies Street transfer station, where people can also drop off their glass for free - indicates there is more glass being put in than expected.
At two sites, there were bottles left on either side of the skip bin, and other recyclable material, like plastic bottles and beer cartons, was also present.
Each site is close to car parks, and according to council, they are in view of security cameras.
The council's promised red tape, to advise people of the safe fill line inside each bin, was on one bin at the Big W car park.
Data will be released on Tuesday on exactly how much glass has been picked up and how much rubbish has been sent to landfill, the council spokesperson said in a statement.
The glass bins were emptied three times this week, but council is working with contractors on scheduling.
"The review of each site will continue to be adaptive unless a clear pattern of use is established over the coming weeks," they said.
"The consideration of further sites will be undertaken as part of the assessment of the existing sites success and management requirements."
The glass will be taken by "partners" once it's collected, with a decision on stockpiles to be made when council "understand(s) the volumes".

The state government announced it is committing $1.6 million to research projects aiming to "close the loop" and create recycled products, including using recycled glass in concrete and asphalt.
The University of Melbourne and Deakin University were named in a media release as two institutions that "will work to drive procurement of large volumes of recycled products into the commercial market".
Residents are also reminded that only "clean glass" will be accepted, and no lids of any kind can be put in the glass bins.
