How long before the glass jar I am about to recycle ends up back on a store shelf?

    A typical glass recycling plant can recycle up to 20 tons of glass per hour, or 160 tons in an eight-hour day. How long a particular piece of glass takes to be recycled depends on a number of factors, including curbside pick-up time, transportation time, sorting and rerouting time and need for a particular type or color of glass. A glass container generally returns to the store shelf within 30 days from the beginning of the recycling process.
