cullet samples

As funding for the community transport became harder to find, we decided to generate income from our own activities. The event recycling service was generating a large quantity of glass which costs the service more to dispose of, than we were earning from the recycling. Following on from a 'Glass Futures' research project, we purchased, with the help of the Millenium Stadium Charitable Trust,a glass imploder that turns waste glass bottles, window glass and mirrors into sharp-free cullet in sizes from 250 micron dust to 10mm.

The cullet has been used for garden paths; ornamental decoration; as a soil improver, a heat sink in greenhouses, cast with resin or cement to make garden ornaments; paving slabs, building blocks and wall tiles. We are particularly interested in working with architects and university departments on ways to create new sustainable living choices, using waste glass materials.
