Collection of Glass Bottles
A collection and recycling route has also been established for glass bottles, which have a long history of use as beverage containers. Returnable bottles are collected and cleaned for reuse as beverage containers while one-way bottles are collected after use and fabricated into cullet (finely broken glass bottles) to mainly use as a raw material in manufacturing glass bottles. Moreover, this cullet is use for applications besides bottles such as insulation, tiles and road surfaces.
Collection of Cans
Spent cans (aluminum/steel) can be traded as a valuable resource, and these materials are reused for cans, motor vehicles, construction materials and more through a wide range of routes.
