The experts from ALBA Group offer tailored solutions for disposing of used glass generated by trade and industry - from collection to transport to recycling in state-of-the-art plants. Hollow glass, such as bottles and other types of glass packaging, is sorted by colour: clear, brown and green. For plate glass products such as window panes and car windscreens, our recycling experts provide separate containers.
Glass – the classic recyclable
Careful collection and sorting
Conserving resources with a sustainable approach
Glass is a common secondary raw material - it is 100 per cent recyclable and can be processed into new, high-quality products over and over again. However, glass has to be sorted accurately - the greater the care taken in sorting the various fractions, the better they can then be recycled. Blue bottles for example should be put in the containers for green glass; it would not impair the quality of that fraction.
