HOW IT WORKS:
Glass recycling is the process of turning waste glass into usable products. Glass is collected from your facility or from your site in crates, roll off container or bulk carrier truck. Glass is then shipped to our facility where it is crushed into a fine powder and sorted by size through a mesh screen. This glass “powder” is then sold for making insulation, reflective paint additive or sand-blasting agent.
Glass recycling uses less energy than manufacturing glass from sand, lime and soda. Every metric ton (1,000 kg) of waste glass recycled into new items saves 315 kilograms (690 lb) of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere during the creation of new glass.
