What is Glass Waste Management?
Due to its versatility, ease of use, and prevalence in our daily lives, glass and bottles have become one of the most significant waste streams. Examples include juice bottles, glassware, light bulbs, and other goods. The usage of glass bottles is becoming increasingly popular as a result of expanding consumer demand, high consumption, and the introduction of a wide range of drinks and juices. Because glass takes millions of years to decompose naturally, managing glass trash becomes a big concern.
Glass waste management is a process of managing glass waste through reduction, recycling and repurposing. Glass recycling or reprocessing involves transforming unwanted glass into usable products. Before being remoulded into bottles and jars, used glass is washed, crushed, and melted. The process can be repeated indefinitely without affecting the final product’s quality.
Finally, recycling glass conserves energy while also lowering acid rain, global warming, and air pollution. Glass goods made from recycled materials require far less energy than those made from virgin materials. Glass made from recycled materials uses only 40% of the energy that glass made from raw materials does. Less energy use means less carbon dioxide is discharged into the atmosphere, resulting in less pollution. Air pollution has been reduced by 20%, and water pollution has been reduced by 50%.
Glass Waste Recycling Process Bournemouth
The first step in glass recycling is to collect it. We’ll come to your location and collect your glass waste whenever you like. We then deliver it to garbage recycling facilities. At the recycling factories, the glass will be cleaned to remove any impurities before being separated into colours and grades. Glasses of the same colour are recycled together since they have the same chemical composition.
At the recycling plant, the glass goes through a pre-treatment process that uses blowing air to remove any paper or plastic. Magnets are used to remove all metal objects which are also known as contaminants.
To make the melting process easier, the material is crushed into tiny bits called cullets. They’ll be melted down to make new glasses, jars, and containers. This method is substantially less expensive than producing glass from raw ingredients. It’s also the most long-term option. You may help save the environment and fulfil your Duty of Care responsibility by properly managing your glass waste.
Bottles and jars are 100 per cent recyclable and may be recycled multiple times without losing quality, while other types of glass products are made in a different way and may cause problems if recycled. This method is substantially less expensive than producing glass from raw ingredients. It’s also the most long-term option.
