Glass recycling is one of the easiest ways to save our planet. Every day we throw waste in our rubbish and the amount of glass is a significant part of the entire garbage. Glass is most preferred material for its characteristics and its ability to preserve all tastes and vitamins. No other material proved so many possibilities of the aspect of food, transport and architecture. Glass bottles can be used for many products, wines, spirits and beers, everything that comes in a glass, as do medications and makeups. Since glass can be shaped, coloured and decorated in any desired way. Like no other material, glass has its own natural quality and durability.

The recycling scheme is a smart way for supermarkets, restaurants, schools and other large households to collect and recycle jars, glass bottles as a clever way to save on energy. Glass waste can be easily transformed into different shapes from water drinking glasses to jars and bottles. When the glass is broken again we can collect, sort and prepare it for recycling.

The benefits of glass recycling are many. Calculations say it takes up to a million years for a bottle to break down and only 30 days recycled glass bottle to become reusable again. It is known that one ton of glass that is recycled saves more than a ton of the raw materials needed to create new glass such as (1200 pounds of sand; 400 pounds of soda ash and 400 pounds of limestone). Recycled manufacturing requires 40 percent less energy than producing new glass from raw materials, because melting will be performed at a lower temperature. The good news is the glass can be recycled over and over again without any loss of quality. Restaurants can collect and recycle bottles for a variety of reasons. With bottle recycler the process of breaking, melting and forming is very simple. Accordingly, glass as a material is non bio- degradable but it can still deteriorate over time. As we are reusing the bottles, a large amount of fresh water is needed to get rid of all dirt and dust.

We all know that glass can be melted down, crushed into smaller pieces called cullet and prepared to be reused again. In the process of preparation broken pieces are sorted, cleaned and mixed together with other materials such as sand and soda and then turned into different shapes to make totally new bottles of various colours and sizes. Today, millions of restaurants all over Australia prefer to recycle bottles, bottle caps, jars, containers and so forth.
