Watch How Glass Is Recycled

The Life of a Bottle

After empty glass bottles are returned to your local beverage container redemption centre, they are shipped to a glass reprocessing plant. Once the bottles arrive, they are sorted by colour and crushed into small pieces referred to as cullet. The cullet is melted in a hot furnace and then molded or pressed into brand new bottles and jars. In just 30 days, a glass bottle can be consumed, returned, and back on the store shelf in its new form.

Glass is 100% recyclable and can be endlessly reprocessed with no loss of quality, purity or strength. Watch the video on the left to learn more about the glass recycling process.
