Why Glass Recycling Matters

Glass is a valuable resource that, when recycled, reduces the strain on our natural resources and minimises the energy needed for production.

Conserve Resources: Helps conserve raw materials like sand, soda ash and limestone, which are used in the manufacturing of new glass products.

Energy Savings: The production of glass from raw materials requires significant energy inputs. Recycling glass reduces energy consumption, leading to lower carbon emissions and a smaller ecological footprint.

Reduced Waste: Glass is inert and does not degrade over time. By recycling, we keep glass out of landfills, preventing unnecessary waste build up.

Maximising Recycling: Glass can be 100% recycled over and over again. It does not lose quality. So recycling it is so worthwhile.

Glass Recycling Process

At Fresh Start Waste Services, we’ve streamlined our process to make it easy for commercial clients to participate:

Collection: We provide convenient glass collection bins placed at strategic locations to facilitate easy drop-off.

Sorting: Once collected, glass is sorted by colour to ensure purity for the recycling process.

Processing: The sorted glass is cleaned and processed to remove impurities, making it ready for recycling.

Recycling: Processed glass is then melted down and used to create new glass products, reducing the need for virgin materials.

Who should recycle glass?


If you’re a large producer of glass waste such as a bar, restaurant, hotel, venue or any business with a canteen, or a glass manufacturer, you’ll likely be producing enough glass to warrant a separate bin and collection of glass waste.

You may also be producing food waste, which can collect at the same time using our twin bodies vehicles. This allows a reduced carbon footprint as one vehicle is divided into two sections to collect glass and food at the same time.
