Rockware is part of the Ardagh group which operates across Europe. In the UK its HQ is in West Yorkshire.
The glass is re-melted in a furnace and is moulded into new bottles and jars.
The firm says it gets plenty of green glass, but is “struggling to get enough” brown and clear and would welcome more food jars.
The new jars and bottles are sold to food and drink firms including Nestle for Gold Blend coffee. About 95% is sold within the UK.
