Recycling glass

Did you know that glass is 100% recyclable and, if pre-treated, can be used straight away as a high-quality primary material in making new glass? So glass is a prime example of a circular economy. Vanheede Environment Group has efficient recycling solutions for hollow glass and flat glass of household or industrial origin.

Hollow glass

Both household and industrial hollow glass:

  • Bottles
  • Jars
  • Tableware

Flat glass

Both household and industrial flat glass:

  • Window panes
  • Mirrors
  • Laminated glass (such as car windows)
  • Safety glass
  • Mixed flat glass

Primary materials for the glass industry

  • Hollow glass: finished products, shards of green and white glass, shards of coloured glass
  • Flat glass (industrial): green and white float glass, laminated glass, mirrors, soft and hard-coated glass, mixed flat glass
  • Flat glass (household): mixed flat glass

These materials are comparable to raw materials and can reduce CO2 emissions from glass by up to 30%. In short, it's a double win for our planet!
