Container Types, Sizes and Refunds
Glass containers are crushed and the glass is formed into tiny glass beads. In Alberta, the glass is spun into thin strings (like cotton candy) and used to make fiberglass insulation. In other parts of the world, glass is sometimes put into the mix for sandblasting material and added to street paint (clear glass only) to make it more reflective. 96.75% is recycled with 3.25% waste including caps, corks and dust.
Other plastic containers, such as coloured PET or those made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) containers are recycled into pellets for use in manufacturer of new non-food plastic products. Over 80% by weight are recycled with less than 20% being contaminants.
In Alberta, clear PET containers are recycled into flakes or pellets for use in manufacture of new food grade beverage containers. In other parts of the world, PET is recycled into textiles like clothing and carpet. Over 80% of PET weight shipped is recycled with less than 20% being labels, caps and contaminants.
Tetra Brik containers (part of the Polycoat group) are made up of three material types: paper, aluminum and plastic. Each container goes through a hydro-pulping process that separates the three different material types. 80% of Tetra Brik is extracted into fibres or paper pulp and used in the manufacture of new paper products. The 20% residual aluminum and plastics are also recycled.
