Poll: How Important is Glass Recycling to Your Company?

Recycling glass helps reduce waste, improve air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save raw materials. Despite these benefits, many glass companies still landfill their glass to save money and time. The U.S. produces around 10 million tons of architectural glass each year. Of that 10 million tons, only about 25% is recycled.
