Auto Windscreens has recycled a 1,246 tons of vehicle glass within the past year – the equivalent weight to about nine blue whales. This is up from last year, according to the company’s waste removal partner, Berryman. It recorded 850 tons of damaged windshields and door glass collected for processing and reuse.
“Every single bit of glass we remove from our customers’ vehicles is recycled. It is vital to prevent unnecessary landfill contributions and is something we feel passionately about. As a business we’re mindful of our Corporate Social Responsibility and it’s one of a number of ‘green’ initiatives we have in place,” Bruce Bahlaj, Auto Windscreens’ health and safety manager, said.
