Bars, restaurants and pubs alone throw away approximately 600,000 tonnes of glass each year, not considering the amount contributed by households and other businesses. This is increasing the amount of waste we currently send to landfill in the UK.
Here at Melton Waste & Recycling, our glass recycling service prevents this distribution to landfill waste, and instead recycles discarded glass to provide a cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternative material.
Recycled glass can be found in a wide range of products including water filtration, fibreglass insulation, and aggregates. By collectively reusing our discarded glass products this way, we’re able to reduce our carbon footprint.
The consumer market has benefited greatly from recycled glass as the ideal source for a thicker and smoother composite, ideal for manufacturing – a benefit not many people had considered.
And so, with the demand for recycled glass on the rise, our service aims to provide a high-quality recycling scheme that provides an affordable segregation process to turn your old and discarded glass into something useful.
We offer weekly and fortnightly collections to suit your individual requirements, for more information on how we can help you recycle your glass, get in touch here and one of our team will be happy to help.
