Waste Glass Acceptance (hollow and flat glass)

The solution for your glass waste

At our certified site in Dormagen-Nievenheim, we assure you both a professional and proper recycling process of glass waste delivered to us. Our trained and quality conscious employees in the receiving area (scale) regularly inspect deliveries regarding color and glass type clarity as well as the degree of contamination. At this juncture, our standardized input specifications and the material specifications agreed upon beforehand with our suppliers and output customers are the base for the decision making process. Certain input contamination and types of glass (glass containing heavy metal, heat-proof and heat-resistant glass, glass fractions containing corundum) are excluded to the full extent from acceptance. Please see our input criteria for acceptance of the respective types of glass for the correspondent specifications.

Important information: To prevent unnecessary breakage of glass, we guarantee handling input quantities with care. This is exactly what we ask for when it comes to our suppliers. In this way, we try to minimize breakage and dust/fines as far as possible since contamination of that kind  is much more difficult to detect and to eliminate. In this context, the increasingly used method of handling glass quantities collected from households which is exercised by many Duales System operators is counterproductive. It puts the compliance with quality goals in danger.
