Recycled Glass Used In First Warrnambool Road Project
About 60,000 locally recycled glass bottles and jars are being used to rebuild Walsh Road in Warrnambool.
The glass comes from three community glass recycling bins placed around Warrnambool in February as well as from the Moyne Shire’s kerbside glass collection.
This glass is then crushed by local firm Fulton Hogan and used as a substitute for sand in the asphalting process.
Walsh Road is the first road in Warrnambool to utilise this new method with about 15 tonnes of glass used in the project.
