Used glass is an important raw material in the recycling loop because it is up to 100% recyclable. It is used, above all, for the manufacture of new glass, in the process saving large amounts of energy and raw materials. Saubermacher provides you with collection receptacles and then hauls the pooled glass away at regular intervals using special vehicles which are able to take both coloured and clear glass in a single collection operation in two independent chambers. This reduces the level of noise pollution in your community and the raw material used glass can be handed over to the glass factory for re-melting in a homogeneous form.
