ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Glass Act Recycling is hosting its first pop up part Friday, August 6 to help bring glass recycling awareness to the community. Annie Collins with Glass Act Recycling, stopped by to tell us more about the events.

Watch the interview with Annie Collins in the video above.

Collins explained that it takes over 1 million years for glass to decompose. Glass Act Recycling is working to repurpose glass waste into new, usable products.

This non-profit project plans to not only collect, but crush and repurpose glass back into the community. Glass can be crushed into sand and used for construction, landscape, pools installation, concrete products, and bagged for erosion control. It can be crushed into cullet (small chips) for terrazzo flooring and decorative concrete countertops, or into a super fine powder and used for sandblasting. Glass can also melted and blown into household objects and glass beads, and jewelry and lamps and well.
