  • Our Glass Crushers

    At Waste Initiatives, we have a glass crushing machine designed to suit any business environment and volume of glass input. Our smaller glass crushers that reduce the number of bin collections are perfect for restaurants and hospitality establishments. Meanwhile, our large glass crushing machines are some of the most advanced secondary and tertiary glass crushers, promising a higher reduction ratio- ideal for optimal glass recycling, and a safer-handling of sand bi-product. All special purpose pulverisers feature an unrestricted discharge opening, perfect for industrial application.

  • The benefits of Glass Recycling & Glass Aggregate

    Looking to up the ante in the safe-handling of your glass recycling? Turn your glass waste throughput into construction material, and reduce your environmental air and water footprint by 20% and 50%! With the concrete industry placing heavy demand on aggregate sources (165 million tonnes annually), it is therefore a definite environmental incentive to develop aggregate sources crafted from waste materials. Although a recent venture, crushed glass is steadily gaining popularity for construction applications including utility backfill, roadways, underground storage tank backfill to landfill cover.

  • Buy or Rent one or three of our industrial glass crushing machines and it could potentially be worthwhile economic and environmental investment.If properly sized and processed by a glass crusher, crushed glass (or cullet) exhibits similar characteristics to sand and gravel, making it a suitable material for fill, construction and road bases. Our glass crushers can create varying sizes and grades of aggregate to suit your requirements and applications.

Frequently Asked Questions: Glass Crushers And Pulverisers

What is a glass crusher?

Glass crushers or glass pulverising machines are specially made for crushing bottle glass into cullet for further processing in glass recycling facilities or to reduce volume for transport. Glass pulverisers produce very fine sand like material for manufacturing aggregates for construction, pipe bedding, building material etc. Some Glass pulverisers also remove contaminants such as lids, labels, caps, etc when pulverising the glass.

How can a glass crusher benefit me?

If you own or manage a hospitality venue, waste management plant or recycling facilities, glass crushers can help you manage the volume of glass and prepare it for further processing. Unlike plastic, glass is infinitely recyclable which is why more and more eco-conscious businesses are taking glass recycling or repurposing a lot more seriously. It goes a long way to reducing what is added and wasted in landfills.

Bottle crushers can reduce a bottle to 80 percent of its size, which really optimises your refuse storage; so that less goes to waste and there’s less work for your workers.

What type of glass crusher/pulveriser do I need?

We have a range of glass crushing machines at Waste Initiatives to cater to a range of different glass recycling requirements. If you’re not sure what to go for, our friendly and knowledgeable staff are happy to answer your questions and provide a recommendation based on how many tonnes per hour you expect to process.

  • Ideal for hotels, restaurants, pubs and recycling centres.
  • Choose the WP GLASS CRUSHER for a stationary model or the ACG1 GLASS CRUSHER for a portable compact model.

Glass Pulveriser range: Pulverises glass into sand and smaller aggregate

  • Up to 125 tonnes per hour, with our highest throughput capacity pulveriser CEMCO 54T

Speciality Pulverisers: For processing e-waste or building waste

  • Select the Gyprock Reducer for plasterboard waste.

How does a glass crusher work?

It depends on the model.

Smaller glass crushers fit for supermarkets, hospitality and the beginning stages of glass recycling in a recycling facility are loaded with an empty wheelie bin at the bottom and filled with glass through the top hopper. Once closing the doors and turning on the machinery, the metal rotors quickly move back and forth to crush the glass.

Larger VSI glass crushers operate instead through a crushing centrifugal force and rotors after glass is loaded through the top. While the GP models are similar by way of their internal centrifugal rotors, they also have a screen to help filter for a safe finished glass aggregate with no sharp edges.

How do you maintain a glass bottle crusher?

Like all industrial or recycling management machines, it's important that you keep your bottle crusher/pulveriser and the surrounding area clean while following the proper procedure in operation. Glass is an extremely abrasive substance, therefore all wear parts need to be inspected regularly.

In addition to these measures, we schedule a preventative maintenance plan to service your glass bottle crushers/pulverisers and keep these machines in optimal condition. It is crucial that your machine is looked at by a technician that is qualified and experienced to service glass crushing machines.
