What happens to your glass?

When we collect your glass waste, it begins a remarkable journey, starting from the moment your glass waste is collected by JWS for recycling.

The glass waste it taken to our Materials Recycling Facility (MRF), before being taken to a specialist glass waste processing facility where it is sorted by colour and washed to remove any impurities.

The clean glass material is then crushed back to a sand-like material called ‘cullet’, which can be used to make anything from new glass bottles to alternative products like brick manufacturing or decorative uses.

The great thing about glass is that it does not degrade through the recycling process, so it can be recycled again and again.
