The second reason is glass recycling is very expensive for businesses. But we still need to do it because it will save energy and save our environment. Recycling just one glass container saves enough energy to power a light bulb for 100 minutes or a computer for 25 minutes. Also, if we do not recycle glass bottles, our only choice will be to build more landfills. I would rather fill our Earth with other things, not landfills.
There are companies that will pick up your glass bottles every week and recycle them for you. If you do not recycle, please visit http://www.hkrecycles.com to collect your recyclables directly from your door for a small fee. The next time you think to throw away glass bottle, please recycle it instead.
