What happens to the collected glass?

The collection crew deposit the mixed glass into one compartment on the collection vehicle. Once collected the glass is sent to a re-processor where it is separated by colour; processed and resold to bottle and jar manufacturers. Any left-over glass is used as an aggregate replacement in construction.
