Day Group Glass Recycling

At the end of 2020, Day Group Ltd collected and exported over 200,000 tonnes of glass to Portugal and Belgium, equivalent to 615 million glass bottles and jars – the most we have ever processed in one year since beginning the glass business in 2000. Glass is an excellent material for recycling as it can be used repeatedly without any loss of quality, making it an ideal green packaging material.

Once our customers receive the exported glass, it is cleaned and mixed with other raw materials to create new bottles and containers. Based on the volumes exported by Day Group during 2020, we estimate that over 2.5 billion new bottles and jars contain our glass.

Thanks must go to Tom Robertson and his team in Greenwich and Glyn Roberts and the logistics team for this success.
