As you probably know the idea of glass recycling in to reuse glass. The recycled glass is crushed and then added to other raw materials such as sand, limestone, soda ash, etc. Glass recycling saves energy. The amount of energy needed to melt recycled glass is considerably less than that needed to melt virgin raw materials to make new glass. Cullet is the term which is used for recycled glass. It's important to know what kind of glass the industry needs. Cullet should meet four criteria:

-Cullet must be separated by color
-Cullet must be contaminant free
-Cullet must meet market specifications
-Cullet must be container glass

You will be able to find more useful information simply by doing a little search on the web.
