Waste glass solutions for Nest
This area in particular strikes me as something we could improve on. Our current system is for everyone to bring their own glass bottles, and then mostly do seperate trips off site to various different places they can be recycled. This is very fuel and time inefficient.
While it would be nice in theory, I don't think bans or restrictions on waste glass are practical from where we are at the moment.
So, the first potential improvement that comes to mind is to have some form of communal waste glass disposal. This would at the very least save a lot of time and fuel from Nestlings on the whole. Maybe a single waste glass area with a bunch of strong bins, and a van to take them off site to a recycling centre as needed would suffice for this.
The second potential improvement I can think of would be to have a glass crusher on site. This would mean that the glass would be far more compact when taken off site, as most of the space taken up by waste glass bottles is air in the middle.
However, I note that I seriously lack knowledge on glass recycling, and even crushing for that matter. So, what do people think would work best here? Discuss.
