Recycling double glazing units | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

A great story about an English company that specialises in recycling double glazing units (windows and doors).

 

GB Cullet recycles about 400,000 tonnes of material each year, collecting unwanted double glazing units from 130 sites across the north of England, the Midlands, Scotland and South Wales.

 

The converted broken glass is used by specialist manufacturers to make new windows, bottles and jars, as well as loft insulation and the reflective beads used in road surfaces.

 

Every by-product in the GB Cullet process, including the uPVC frames, wood, aluminium and cardboard packaging is 100 per cent recycled and sold on.
