Automotive Glass Collection and Recycling Pilot Study 1999-01-0672

The Vehicle Recycling Partnership (VRP) glass recycling project team evaluated the current state of automotive glass recycling. The area that had the most opportunity for improvement was the materials recycling of vehicle assembly plant scrap and post consumer automotive glass. The main barriers to be overcome were the logistics and the cost of collection. Automotive glass repair shops were chosen for study. A process was developed for collection and delivery of the glass to a recycler. The process was piloted and the result was a standard process and contract that could be used by other glass repair shops for recycling their glass.
