Company profile

The Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) is South Africa’s official organisation for promoting glass recycling.

Our core objective is to keep glass alive by promoting the practice of recycling and reusing this environmentally friendly packaging.

Our strategic objectives also focus on the promotion of the reuse of returnable bottles; entrepreneur development and job creation; capacity building and development of synergies with all levels of Government as well as NGOs.

TGRC was established following a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2005, with the Department of Environmental Affairs.

Our role is to increase glass reuse through returnable bottles and recycling in South Africa. In 13 years we have increased the glass recycling rate from 18% to 42%
