What is Commercial Glass Waste Recycling?
Any waste resulting from a commercial operation is considered business waste. It has been estimated that glass has been used as packaging for over 5000 years. It is 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled indefinitely. Though glass waste recycling is the best thing since sliced bread, it is not without its own challenges. Recycling glass poses many challenges. Especially if it is not separated early enough in the sorting process, it can be difficult to distinguish from other materials in single-stream recycling bins. Unsurprisingly, contamination causes half of the glass collected through single-stream recycling to become unrecyclable.
As a result, glass is difficult to move, which presents a safety risk to carriers, and is hard on equipment because of its many colours. Even though they’re made of virtually the same material, glass of different colours cannot be recycled together. As a result, it is often necessary to hire someone to process the materials, such as Liverpool Waste especially when they are polluted with other elements.
Glass Waste Recycling Process Liverpool
The process of converting glass materials into new glass goods is known as glass recycling. Used glass materials are recycled in this fashion, which necessitates breaking and melting the glass. Almost all of the glass we use is recyclable. Similarly, the food container you use to store your food is recyclable as well. You can throw glass jars and condiment containers in the recycling bin, too. Below is the glass recycling process:
Glass is separated if necessary: Depending on the eventual usage, glass recycling frequently includes color separation. The colour of glass that has been dyed with a natural colorant cannot be erased. As a result, colored glass can only be recycled into the same colour glass. First, coloured glass is split into colors to be recycled, or it can be recycled and reused as fiberglass or a concrete ingredient if left together.
- Metal and other contaminants are removed, as well as metal and plastic covers.
- Cullet is melted down once the glass is crushed (made into a cullet). Any paper that is left on the glass is conveniently burned away. Because recycled cullet is produced at a lower temperature than new glass, recycling glass results in significant energy savings.
- Moulding and shaping: The melted glass is poured into the mould and/or shaped to create the final product.
In addition to containers, recycled glass is used in turf, ammunition, tiles, and produced sand (for beaches in need).
