Why Recycle Glass?
Glass is an amazing, yet under-appreciated material and its hugely recyclable! Container glass, such as glass jars and glass bottles can be recycled almost infinitely with little or no degradation in the quality! Recycling glass uses less resources and energy to produce than making glass from it’s raw materials.
Are there types of glass that can’t be recycled? Well, yes. But just because it can’t be turned straight back into a bottle or jar, doesn’t mean it has to end up in landfill. There are a number of ways special glasses can be recycled. One of those is eco-sand.
Eco sand is essentially sand that has been created from the glass waste that cannot be turned back into shiny new recycled glass bottles or jars. In this case it is turned into sand which can be used in the construction industry – laying paving slabs for example.
