Glass Recycling Process

Sorting

The glass recycling process begins when glass is sorted based on color. Different chemicals need to be  added to take the glass back to a basic color.

Processing

The glass pieces are crushed into tiny pieces of sand like pellets referred to as cullets. Once crushed, the glass goes through the process of removing contaminants such as metal and ceramic pieces.

Melting and Recycling

The last process is to melt the cullets to be used.
