Interesting video on how glass is recycled (via Marginal Revolution).

At the end, of the video the guys says, “the interesting things is if you buy a Snapple bottle in New York and turn it back in through one of the recycling bins, we’ll turn it into another Snapple bottle.”

I did find that interesting that it must be cheaper and easier to break down the bottle and remake it than it is to wash it and reuse it.

  1. perhaps liability is included in the cost? would a jury be more likely to award a person who had cut their lip on a ‘used’ bottle than a new one?
