Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without any loss in quality. Recycled container glass (bottles and jars) is highly sought after because glass manufacturers require high-quality recycled container glass (cullet) to meet market demands for new glass containers. Using recycled glass as part of the recipe for new glass decreases the energy used in the furnaces, reduces emissions and consumption of raw materials, and extends the life of plant equipment in the manufacturing facility, lowering costs and benefiting the environment. Recycled glass containers must be contaminate free and the pieces must meet size specifications to be used for manufacture of glass bottles and jars or to make fibreglass. If the recycled glass does not meet the specifications then it can be used in manufacture for tiles, filtration, sand blasting, aggregate and concrete pavements.
