Our glass collection and recycling service make it easy for your business to recycle.
All your staff have to do is put the glass into whatever container size suit your business. We collect on a regular basis and take the glass to a re-processor based in the UK.
The glass is then sorted into various colours, ground down and made into cullet (fine glass ready to be remelted).
The cullet is supplied to glass manufacturers throughout the UK who make it into a wide variety of glass containers, so your wine bottle might end up as a jam jar.
The material structure of glass does not degrade when it is recycled meaning that 100% of the glass waste can be reclained and used to make more containers and this can happen again and again.
Recycling two glass bottles uses the same amount of energy as boiling water for five cups of tea - this quickly adds up, every tonne of glass waste remelted saves 315kg of carbon dioxide. Currently over 1,500,000 tonnes of glass is recycled from household collections every year.
