Glass bottle recycling

The recycling of glass bottles is increasing every year, but the amount of recycling is enormous and immeasurable.

According to the Glass Packaging Association, the energy saved by recycling a glass bottle can turn on a 100 watt light bulb for about 4 hours, run a computer for 30 minutes, and watch 20 minutes of TV programs. Therefore, recycling glass is a significant matter.

Glass bottle recycling saves energy, reduces the garbage capacity in landfills, and can provide more raw materials for other products, including glass bottles. According to the National Consumer Plastic Bottle Report of the Chemical Products Council in the United States, approximately 2.5 billion pounds of plastic bottles were recycled in 2009, with a recycling rate of only 28%.
