At Mission Recycle our goal is to provide residential and commercial recycling solutions for the city of Houston in order to reduce the number of recyclable materials ending up in landfills. Strong commitments to recycling programs can help support the environment by saving on natural resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and cutting down on pollution. One type of recyclable material that is left out in cities across the nation is glass. At Mission Recycle, we made it part of our mission to recycle glass because of how it doesn’t contribute to pollution and can be reused in a number of ways.
Benefits of Glass Recycling
It takes more energy consumption to use raw materials and natural resources as opposed to recycling glass products and finding new uses for them. The manufacturing process for creating glass for the first time uses up a lot of energy, while recycled glass requires significantly fewer materials and lower temperatures. Glass actually has the added benefit of being a reusable material for a number of household goods and items, like reusable food storage receptacles. Glass is also non-porous and does not have chemical reactions like some of its plastic product counterparts.
