Repeat collects glass from community drop-sites, apartments & condos, bars & restaurants, and other organizations.
The glass goes to a processor, such as CAP Glass or Strategic Materials, Inc, where it is made into cullet.
Cullet is sent to manufacturers, such as Owens-Illinois and Knauf.
The manufacturers create new products, including container glass and fiberglass insulation.
The mission is...
to provide an effective and reliable glass recycling stream for homes and businesses in Northeast Ohio.
The problem is...
the majority of glass recycling in Northeast Ohio is commingled, which means it is mixed with other recyclables (i.e. paper, aluminum, plastics).
~> Highly contaminated glass
~> Sent to landfills as mass cover
The solution is...
to create a separate stream for glass recycling.
~> Little contamination
~> Used to produce new glass or fiberglass insulation
Repeat Glass is...
creating a Clean Glass Network in Northeast Ohio.
~> Extends the life of recycled glass
~> Preserves natural resources
The owner is...
In 2014, Jamie founded a glass recycling service in Kansas City called GlassBandit. In 2021, he sold the company (now Crush Glass), and he and his wife moved their family back home to Cleveland. It did not take long to recognize the problem with glass recycling in Northeast Ohio, which is why he started Repeat Glass.
