A first step is to grind the waste, so the garbage bags are opened and then all the waste is ground into small pieces. It is then placed on a conveyor belt, above which hangs a strong magnet. This magnet removes all the iron from the waste for processing. Next, a blast of air is used to blow out all the light plastic.

Glass is infinitely recyclable and mainly comes back as new glass packaging. New glass packaging already consists of 50 to 80 percent old packaging glass. So basically, we all already use circular products made of glass in our daily lives. Both at home and at work.
