What happens to the glass ofter collection?

In York, glass waste is taken to a local treatment facility where it undergoes processing.

The technology used for recycling glass is known as “glass beneficiation.” It involves crushing and melting used glass to create new glass products. The process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Collection: Used glass is collected from homes, businesses, and recycling centers.
  2. Sorting: The collected glass is sorted by color, as different colors of glass have different chemical compositions and melting points. This ensures that the recycled glass is of the same color and quality as the original product.
  3. Cleaning: The glass is then cleaned to remove any contaminants such as paper, plastic, and other materials.
  4. Crushing: The glass is crushed into small pieces or cullet, which are then transported to a glass recycling facility.
  5. Melting: The cullet is melted in a furnace at high temperatures to produce molten glass.
  6. Manufacturing: The molten glass can then be molded or blown into new glass products, such as bottles, jars, and other containers.

The use of recycled glass in manufacturing reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions compared to the production of new glass from raw materials.

We are happy to help businesses in York, Selby and nearby with all of their glass and recyling or disposal needs.
