A one-year WRAP funded project aims to help increase glass recycling. BRE-led research will assess the recycling opportunities for non-contaminated, high-grade flat glass and non-contaminated timber and plastic profiles from the demolition and replacement window industries.

This will help to address the WRAP glass specific target to increase flat glass collection and recycling by 20,000 tonnes.

For the first phase of the project, two short questionnaires have been designed to establish the current types and volumes of waste flat glass and associated timber and plastics in the UK (little data is currently available).

The results will be used to inform the waste producers - eg manufacturers, installers, demolition contractors - of opportunities for diverting this waste from landfill and securing an income from this material. This information and best practice guidance will be available to the industry in early 2003 on the WRAP website ( and in published documents by BRE and British Glass.
