At a recycling convention, I spoke with a glass manufacturer about recycling. At one point in the conversation the glass guy said, “you can’t get cheaper than sand.” Shocked, I interpreted the underlying philosophy (of the glass guy) that it was a more of a hassle to recycle glass than it was to just bring in some fresh sand. It made me a little bit suspicious of why he was at the recycling convention. Also, I began to wonder about the public’s participation in some of the recycling programs available for glass.
