Commercial Glass Recycling FAQs

Can all drinking glasses be recycled?

Not all glass can be recycled and we are often asked why we do not offer recycled drinking glasses as a service.

Drinking glasses (and some other glass products) are made from toughened glass, they have a higher melting point which makes recycling problematic.

Where does the other glass bottle recycling go?

These toughened drinking glasses are recycled in the same way as broken glass. This type of glass is used to build roads and buildings.
