There are many uses for recycled glass other than to create new bottles. These include:
The amount of energy needed during the glass recycling process is greatly reduced when processing recycled glass, or “Cullet”, into new items. This equates to around a 300Kg CO2 saving per tonne of glass during the glass recycling process.
In fact, recycling two bottles saves enough energy to boil water for five cups of tea. While the energy saving from recycling a single bottle will power a 100-watt light bulb for almost an hour, or a colour TV for 20 minutes.
Not only is it far kinder to the environment for you to recycle. It also greatly reduces your costs for waste disposal. Any waste which is sent to landfill must be paid for by the tonne. Recycling your glass (or any waste which is recyclable), reduces the amount of money which local authorities have to pay. So you can see why recycling your glass has massive benefits for the environment, as well as a huge potential for improving your profit margins. Glass recycling just makes sense!
