Did you know that recycling glass can have tons of amazing benefits? For example, this is one of the many ways we can help reduce pollution and waste. Glass objects pilling up at landfills are a threat to the environment and of course safety. You can rely on 310-DUMP to recycle your glass the right way!
After you recycle glass, it is taken to a manufacturing or recycling plant, where it is broken up into smaller pieces called cullet. After being crushed, cleaned and sorted, it is prepared to be mixed with other raw materials. After this process, the glass pieces and raw materials are melted in a furnace and molded into shapes to make new bottles or jars of various sizes and colors.
Energy is saved when recycling as the cullet melts at a lower temperature, compared to using raw materials for the first time in order to make the glass. In the end we can save on energy needed to melt the glass and reduce related water pollution by 50% and air pollution by 20%. Another benefit is the space saving factor of recycling glass. Space that would otherwise be taken up by used bottles and jars will free up in landfills, garbage bins and even nature.
So don’t do it just for you, do it for the planet! The environment needs you and every small step and contribution count!
