Here at Fresh Start, we provide a full glass recycling service throughout Greater Manchester and the rest of the North West of England.

As one of the region’s leading independent waste management companies, we are fully committed to a greener future and do our utmost to help businesses and organisations meet their environmental obligations. Not only this, but we want to save you money, too!

We know how much additional weight glass can add to your general waste collections, so segregating your glass into a dedicated wheelie bin will ensure that you manage your costs efficiently.

We will guide you every step of the way, assessing your work areas so that you’re matched with the most suitable containers for your needs, and empowering you with all the tools to become a more sustainable business.

As it is an infinitely recyclable resource, we work closely with our partners in the industrial, commercial, construction and licensing trades to ensure that as much of it as possible is diverted away from landfill.

We work tirelessly to ensure that collected products are directed to state of the art recovery facilities, where the glass waste is separated, graded and enters into a closed loop recycling system.

Production from recycled glass uses around 75% fewer raw materials than virgin glass, and as the melting point of the crushed cullet is much lower than if the process starts from scratch, the manufacture of recycled glass also expends less energy and emits lower levels of greenhouse gases.

Glass is also hugely versatile once it has been melted down, and can gain a second life not just in recycled jars and bottles, but also in building aggregate, glass wool, and fibre optic cables among other useful things.

While we don’t currently offer a domestic service, we do collect and recycle all kinds of glassware from all commercial and public sector premises.

If your business needs a progressive waste management company to deal with your glass collection and recycling needs in the North West, contact Fresh Start today!
