EWS picks up your recyclable materials, and they are transported to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). At the MRF, recyclable items are sorted by type and then shredded or crushed, baled and loaded onto tractor-trailer trucks to be shipped to factories or mills and turned into new, usable products.
The combination of ingredients used to make glassware is different from what goes into container glass for bottles and jars. If these two types of glass are recycled together, the resulting glass will not be suitable for container glass. In fact, glassware, ceramics, window panes, or mirrors can pose a threat to equipment in a glass recycling plant.
