glass disposal

It is a complicated thing to understand that the best place for your household glass is either the landfill or sent to get a refund.

It starts with the false notion that it is practical to recycle glass.

Then it turns out glass is more valuable than sand.

Then there is the need to remove garbage from a household.

It is not worth taking to market.

There is no practical method that presently serves the scale needed for reusing, reducing and recycling.

The product is glass.

Whoever finds a way to make it worthwhile for garbage companies to process glass will also find a practical way to remove it from households.

Nobody wants to hear about the glass ending up in the landfill and no one wants to be billed to remove glass from their household.

Many people don’t even want to send their refundable bottles to the return or bottle depot.

Let’s start finding solutions that will work for all these needed households.

It costs too much in fuel and we need to fix it by changing individual use.

Here is a job worth doing.
