Rubbish Removal Sydney: How Does Recycling Glass Help the Environment?

At Sydney City Rubbish, we deal with plenty of glass waste.

From bottles, jars and cups to house and car windows, virtually all types of glass waste can be effectively recycled, and reused in the manufacturing process.

Doing this has an excellent impact on the environment, and recycling 100% of glass is something that every single individual and Sydney business should strive for.

In fact, Sustainability Victoria states that ‘recycling one glass bottle can save enough energy to power a TV for one and a half hours’.

Here are just some of other the environmental benefits of recycling your glass waste.

Recycling Conserves Natural Resources

The natural resources that are required to make new glass include sand, soda ash and limestone.

When glass is melted down and reused, it means these resources don’t need to be taken from the earth. In fact, recycling one tonne of glass actually saves more than one tonne of these materials.

Therefore, it’s essential we recycle all of our glass waste. To do this effectively, hire a professional Sydney rubbish removal company, like Sydney City Rubbish.

We’ll ensure that your glass waste is properly dealt with, making sure your impact on the environment is a very positive one.

It’s Far More Sustainable

Glass can be recycled over and over, and over again.

Moreover, the makeup of glass means it’s 100% recyclable. That makes glass one of the most sustainable materials that we use day to day, and it never loses its purity or quality.

This gives glass a serious edge over plastic and other materials for a variety of uses. However, it only retains this usefulness if we recycle properly.

To make sure that happens, hire a professional Sydney rubbish removal company.

It Protects the Environment

A glass bottle in landfill can take one million years to break down.

Therefore, it’s essential we don’t allow glass waste to end up in landfill, especially when it can so easily be recycled.

Moreover, recycling glass also protects the atmosphere from harmful emissions.

In fact, for every 1000 tonnes of glass that is melted down for use again, we save 314 tonnes of carbon emissions! That is a huge result for the environment.
