At this location, EWG takes the sorted glass and individually crushes it down to furnace ready cullet. Any contaminants that are left over are taken out such as paper labels and plastic. The glass is processed to a size fit for furnace ready cullet that is then able to be brought to the mills.

Once the glass is crushed down it is ready to be transported. EWG transports glass to the mills by truck or rail. At our trans-load location, glass is shipped across the country and down south to be melted down into new bottles or jars.
EWG provides a portable crusher on-site to different mills across the country. The process is the same as our crushing facility. This portable machine crushes any broken, reject or extra glass on site of the mills in order to be used in the furnace.

This location is an abrasives facility where glass that can’t be sold back to the bottle industry is used for other purposes. All the contaminants are taken out of the glass and grinded to a fine size. It is then bagged and sold to the boating/auto industries and the military to be used for sand blasting. Abrasives, sand blasts and other filter media are produced from this fine, grinded glass.
