Glass Facts and figures
Glass Recycling

  • Glass makes up about 9% of all the rubbish we throw away.
     
  • Glass bottles were originally made by hand-blowing them into different shapes.  They have only been made by machines for the last hundred years or so.
     
  • The largest furnaces used to make glass can produce more than 400 tonnes of glass a day that's more than one million bottles and jars each day!
     
  • One bottle bank can hold up to 3,000 bottles before it needs to be emptied.
