What happens to the collected glass?

The collectors will separate out the glass and store it in a different compartment on the vehicle.

Once collected, the glass is sent to a re-processor where the glass is colour separated, processed and resold to glass bottle and jar manufacturers. Any left-over glass is used as an aggregate replacement in construction.
