What is Glass Waste Recycling?

A simple way to improve the quality of life in our world through waste is to recycle. Glass waste recycling is the method of changing glass waste into functional glass products, be it jars, bottles, or aggregate. The glass waste you generate will be handled and recycled properly by Sunderland Waste, which can be reused in a variety of ways. Without losing its quality, glass can be recycled indefinitely. Glass recycling offers many proven environmental benefits, including reduced emissions, savings in energy and the use of raw materials. Material recycling is also popular as it is a common component of the home. Glass waste includes everything that has been discarded and disposed of from broken glass bottles to jars.

The recycling of glass waste is wonderful, but it is not without its own set of challenges. There are many challenges involved in recycling glass. The material can be difficult to separate from other materials when it is not separate enough early in the sorting process. It is unsurprising that contamination results in half of the single-stream recycled glass becoming unprocessable.

How is Glass Waste Recycled?

Almost all of the glass we use is recyclable. The recycling bin also accepts glass jars and condiment containers. It is important that it is separated from other recyclable materials and placed in its own recycling tank before recycling glass. It is not advisable to mix glass with other recyclable materials. The fragile nature of the glass makes it an undesirable contaminant for other types of recyclable waste. Below are the steps involved in recycling glass:


Your waste is going to be collected. After collecting the glass waste, it is transferred into recycling centres. Glass is collected and transferred from your premises to one of our state-of-the-art recycling centres. Glass is maintained together in all colours; it is only separated in recycling facilities. The contamination and hazardous products are tested extensively in all containers.


Recycling will start with the sorting of glass by step at the recycling centre. Pollutants will also be filtered out. All of the common contaminants include ceramics, aluminium tanks, light bulbs, cartons, window frames and mirrors, plastic, food and oil. Any glass that cannot be recycled is called contamination and must be disposed of.

Crushing and melting:

The crushing stage of glass waste follows the sorting phase. It is intended to facilitate the melting of glass by recycling companies. This is done with the assistance of an automated recycling station with 24 hammers. The driving shaft of the machine rotates irregularly, breaking the glass into little pieces. The glass is melted and blown into the required forms for glass articles like jars and glass containers after this phase.

Recycled glass may also be used for repair or construction purposes in turf, munitions, tiles and fabricated sand, as well as for containers. Glass can be modified to produce both common and unusual products, such as raw components, which can be added to the glass fabrication process to create a particular color or distinguishing characteristic.
