Establishing glass crushing infrastructure in regional

A guide turning glass fines into recycled crushed glass

The process of turning glass fines into a Recycled Crushed Glass (RCG) product, and how to determine is if it a viable option for MRFs and other processors, is explored in this Guide – Glass Fines Recycling: Guide to Establishing Glass Crushing Infrastructure in Regional Areas. The guide to recycling glass fines was  prepared on behalf of EPA with support from the Australian Packaging Covenant.

Several case studies are acknowledged in the guide also – focussing on the four grants provided by the NSW EPA in February 2013 for the construction of glass crushing facilities adjacent to regional MRFs – Challenge Community Services (Tamworth), Kurrajong Recycling (Wagga Wagga), Shoalhaven Recycling (Bombaderry)  and SITA Australia, (Moruya). These are available for download below
