Glass waste collection and recovery

We collect glass waste from construction and engineering sites through our tailored collection and disposal services. Alternatively, glass waste can be dropped off at our many transfer stations across the country.

Glass from construction and demolition sites is not made of the same material as glass in regular beverage containers. In states where construction and demolition glass waste is accepted, we collect it separately from container glass and take the waste to a beneficiation plant to be crushed, cleaned and processed for use in construction.

What happens to your glass waste?

Glass waste from your construction site is screened to remove contamination then sorted for further processing. Depending on the type of glass, it may also be crushed into a fine sand for use in construction projects.
