Recycle glass bottles

Recycle glass bottles

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Bring in the glass bottle breaker that turns your used glass bottles into sand ready for using in the building trade What do you need to make this change? The government to make them free for councils to install around there constituency 👍


Glass should not be crushed but preferably reused (eg milk bottles) and recycled (molten to make new glass). Production of glass needs a lot of energy and turning it essentially into sand (which already is available) is a waste.

I would rather see glass bottle being washed and reused for the same purpose at a local scale, to limit the energy used in transforming and transporting the primary material.

Might reduce the cost of building affordable housing
