Recycling

Glass containers are 100% recyclable with no loss in quality or purity. Every bit of a glass bottle or jar can be made into a new container over and over again. 

Cullet (recycled glass) used in the manufacturing process reduces the use of raw materials and energy consumption. Saint-Gobain Kavminsteklo has its own cullet processing workshop and actively seeks opportunities with customers, community recycling organizations and government officials to improve glass recycling efforts and create new sources of cullet.
