Function: The Glass Recycling Plant consists of an in-feed entry hopper; a conveyor feeds a CROO2 Cruncher that reduces 300 Kg per hour of glass into aggregate. The discharge is onto a transfer conveyor that then transfers it into a Rotary sieving device. The Rotary sieving device then sieves the incoming aggregate into 4 different sizes.
It was estimated by the Department of Environmental Affairs in 2012 that 65% of the waste that we produce in South Africa is recyclable, which is good news. However, out of the 90% of waste that’s landfilled, only 10% is actually diverted and recycled. Then in 2017, the Department of Environmental Affairs’ South African Waste Information Centre came back to us and reported that over 19.2 million tonnes of general waste and one million tonnes of hazardous waste went to the country’s 825
South Africa consumes more than 3.1 million tonnes of glass a year, of which two thirds is reusable and can be diverted from landfills; in fact, glass accounts for 4.5% of all waste. As South Africans, we should be striving for a resource efficient economy where pragmatic sustainability measures – like glass recycling – drive waste reduction.
