Glass Crusher

The World’s most efficient glass crush system


Tested and in production the GLSand is a specialty glass reduction machine designed with bars, cafes, restaurants, clubs hotels, resorts and holiday home owners in mind located in areas where recycling is either costly or does not exist. The simplicity of the GLSand is an astounding feature. The operator simply ensures the bucket is not full and is inserted correctly, switches the machine on and feeds individual bottles through the rubber safety flap on the shoot. The precision cut hammers each individually balanced take care of the rest, reducing glass bottles from their full state to a fine sand or grit in a matter of seconds.

Economic waste disposal by optimizing space

Empty glass bottles consist of mainly of air, therefore hospitality venues are predominantly paying to have air removed from their premises, rather than actual glass. Empty bottles take up space, which means that sites either have large number of bins collected weekly, or if space is limited, fewer bins are collected more frequently; either way it is expensive.

Disposing of empty glass bottles is inconvenient, costly and inefficient! By smashing these bottles into cullet glass saves money and much more!
