Did you know that glass can be recycled into many different things?

by admin on October 12, 2007

Most people think of glass as a fragile commodity. After all, we’ve all broken a glass or a window or something made of glass by accident. But did you know what that glass can become once it’s recycled?

It can be made into many things including:

  • Recycled glass for new bottles, jars, etc.etc.
  • Glass flooring and countertops
  • Glass Artistic Sculptures
  • Recycled Glass Pavers
  • Fiberglass insulation
  • A whole lot more!

Remember to separate your glass out for recycling in it’s own bin. Most recyclers ask you to sort glass containers by color—clear, green, or amber (golden brown). Once glass has been colored, the color cannot be removed. That means a maker of clear glass jars cannot use colored cullet. Why do some manufacturers package their foods and beverages in green or amber colored glass containers? The colored glass protects some sensitive foods and beverages from light.

To help you recycle glass, we’ve developed the RP163 Recycled Glass Poster:
