Glass recycling in America-Challenges and Opportunities
May 19, 2011, Hilton Savannah DeSoto, Savannah, GA
Presented by the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council
Glass Recycling in America has achieved only a fraction of its potential. Glass is the only common product material with an endless life cycle, yet most glass in the U.S. is not reused. Barriers to a more robust recycling utilization include both technical and economic barriers. Many constituents have an interest in the state of glass recycling, including city and state governments, waste processors, glass industry suppliers as well as glass manufacturers. This symposium brings all stakeholders together for the common purpose of understanding how to achieve a more robust and successful recycling of glass in America.
