What is Glass Waste Recycling?

Glass waste recycling is the process of turning glass waste into a cullet to make it easier to melt to create new glasses. Glass is one of the most ancient forms of packaging, dating back over 5,000 years. Glass can be recycled and treated indefinitely and is 100 percent recyclable. Bristol Waste provides glass recycling collection and disposal services. The commercial glass recycling statistics indicate that businesses and industry can do more to improve. Over 200 000 tonnes of glass are discarded every year by pubs, restaurants, and bars in the hospitality industry alone.

Unlike other materials, glass does not degrade over time. It will take approximately a million years for the glass in landfills to degrade. However, the good news is when it is recycled, glass doesn’t degrade in quality. This means that it can be recycled over and over without ever losing its quality. There are many different categories of glass based on their chemical composition. And before it can be recycled, it needs to be separated according to these different grades. The reason for this is that not all glass can be recycled. For example, lightbulbs and specific chemically treated glass forms. It is equivalent to taking 120 000 cars off the road to reduce carbon emissions by recycling glass jars and bottles.


How is Glass Waste Recycled?

New glass is generated and made into a variety of items.

Glass that has been discarded is disposed of. Glass for recycling is taken to a glass treatment factory, where it is washed and sorted by colour. When glass is not disposed of in a landfill, it is processed into a cullet, which makes for easy recycling.

Cullet is used to make new products like bottles and jars, as well as windows, fiberglass, and smaller components for industrial applications. It’s crushed, melted, and shaped into new items. (Broken glass may require a different method.)
