Processed Glass Aggregate: Recycling Glass Saves Money and the Environment

Friday, October 9, 2020

NRRA has provided for decades an option for crushing glass bottles and jars, plus additional glass-like materials in New Hampshire, into processed glass aggregate to be used in infrastructure projects in the place of sand and gravel.  NRRA currently has consolidation sites in New Hampshire and Massachusetts where NRRA members can bring their glass for recycling. Once a host site collects approximately 1,000 tons of glass from its contributing communities, a mobile glass crusher is brought to the site to turn the recycled glass into processed glass aggregate.
