By realising the importance of recycling glass and using glass cullet in manufacturing, the glass industry could become a circular economy.
We envision a future in our country where glass can be recycled completely and cullet can be used as a raw material in the manufacturing process.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is glass cullet?
Glass cullet, also known as glass scrap, is broken or crushed glass that is ready to be re-melted and used in the glass recycling process. There are two types of glass cullet, internal cullet, and external cullet.
Internal cullet consists of glass waste that does not clear quality control checks in glass industries or waste that is rejected due to deformities or cracks. External cullet refers to the post-consumer glass waste that is collected with the idea of recycling and is recovered from the municipal waste stream.
Is glass 100% recyclable?
Yes! Glass is one of the most recyclable materials on planet Earth. It is 100% recyclable and has an unlimited life. It can be recycled endlessly without a loss in its quality or purity.
Is it cost effective to recycle glass?
The cost savings of recycling is in the use of energy. Compared to making glass from raw materials for the first time, cullet melts at a lower temperature. So we can save on energy needed to melt the glass.
Glass produced from recycled glass reduces related air pollution by 20% and related water pollution by 50%.
What does Terraglass do?
Terraglass collects vast amounts of sheet glass scrap daily. This scrap glass is then sorted in different colours, cleaned and made free from debris. The high quality glass cullet is then supplied to the clients.
Will Terraglass collect my old broken bottles?
Unfortunately, we do not deal in kitchenware glass or glass bottle cullet.
