The Quality Protocol for the production of processed cullet from waste flat glass

This quality protocol, which only applies in England and Wales, should make it easier to recycle the 6.6 million domestic windows that are replaced every year, into products such as filtration media and new windows.

Produced in consultation with the UK glass industry and other key stakeholders, this QP will provide collectors, recyclers and processors with a clear set of practices and standards designed to increase both the volume and quality of flat glass cullet being sold to manufacturers.
