CRA & NC DEACS Host Glass Recycling Forum in NC

Earlier this week over 50 participants gathered in Wilson, NC for a Glass Recycling Forum in order to learn more about glass recycling’s successes and challenges in North Carolina and beyond. Attendees including, CRA members, public recycling officials, and private sector stakeholders, discussed the practical aspects of managing glass for recycling from collection through MRF processing, beneficiation, and final use of cullet. Following the forum, attendees toured the Strategic Materials glass beneficiation plant and Ardagh’s glass manufacturing facility.
