Minneapolis Glass Repair and Replacement Company Celebrates Earth Day with a New State-of-the-art Glass Recycling Program

Post Time:Apr 23,2012Classify:Company NewsView:232

 

It has always been a difficult and costly proposition for glass repair and replacement companies to dispose of their broken glass. Until recently they could only recycle a small fraction of the glass leaving the rest to be hauled off to area landfills. Most of the glass recycling today focuses on glass bottles and containers. Many collection facilities that collect these bottles have to separate the glass by color. This was not only cumbersome but also dangerous because of the nature of handling broken glass.

 

Previously with auto glass and particularly windshield glass, there were minimal recycling options available due to the polyvinyl butyral (or PVB) used in the manufacturing of windshields. Recycling home window glass was also problematic due to insulated glass windows having an aluminum spacer and a sealer holding the two panes of glass together. These concerns are no longer an issue due to a glass pulverizing technique that is becoming increasingly more popular.
