Glass Recycling Process

Onsite glass recycling plant

Using recycled materials in glass production helps to reduce energy and therefore is an important aspect when it comes to sustainable production. Increasing the percentage of recycled materials within the melting operation also reduces CO2.

Beatson Clark have invested in our own onsite recycling plant, processing 42,000 tonnes of glass each year recovered from the hospitality trade, kerbside collections and bottle banks. 

The processed recycled cullet is then melted in our furnaces to manufacture new glass bottles and jars.
