GET TO KNOW US > About us > About us

We are the non-profit organisation responsible for managing the recycling of all glass packaging waste in Spain. 

We offer a universal and public service to all citizens. We work in the hope that our efforts will allow us to transform a waste product into a valuable resource. We were founded in 1997 as a result of the Ley de Envases y Residuos de Envases* (1997 Packaging and Waste Packaging Law) with one main objective: increase the recycling rate for glass in Spain with the aim of protecting the environment and contributing towards sustainable development, in accordance with the principles of the circular economy. 

We believe that the only way to achieve this is by means of collaborating with the industry, with governmental bodies, packaging companies and through the collaboration of all citizens, who are the real protagonists in this model. 

For this reason, we have invested more than 17 years assuring a model of efficient and effective management. 

Our achievements

We started our activity  in 1997 and since then, we have achieved great results. But that's not enough for us!
