Info:

Glass is a material, which can be melted an unlimited number of times and be processed to be used in new glass products. 

Preventing/Reducing:

Small damages to windscreens (for instance by a stone) can be repaired by specialized companies. Use returnable bottles instead of glass or plastic cans or one-way bottles. Use the water from the tap.

Collect flat glass, laminated glass (windscreen) and hollow glass (bottles) separately to allow for recycling.

Recycling/environment correct disposal:

During the recycling, glass sorted according to types is broken in several steps and contaminations are eliminated by metal separators, wind sieves and sieves. The glass granulate / powder obtained is melted and used to create new products.
