To ensure and optimize worksite’s waste sorting, reduction and recycling.

Detailed requirement

Identifying, quantifying and reducing the worksite waste by type but also recycling it as well as possible, as appropriate for the existing local recycling channels, and ascertain the appropriate destination of the waste.

Our contribution

As the glazing is manufactured in plants and supplied to measure, they do not generate any cutting waste on-site. However, certain elements need to be considered to protect and maintain glass during its delivery on pallets or easels.

Made of corrugated cardboard, plastic or glass, they are recyclable and can be sorted directly on site. And the metal delivery frames are usually collected by the glazing supplier.

Additionally, Saint-Gobain in France and the United Kingdom is setting up partnerships to recover glass at the end of the project, particularly for renovation and demolition projects. Thus, the glazing of old facades or windows can be reintegrated into the float because the glass is 100% recyclable.
