[FEB 19] [REPURPOSE] Outsourcing options: Glass

Over January, ERS Repurpose explored outsourcing options for plastic, glass and cardboard. It became apparent we were spreading too far and thin, reverting the focus to ONLY plastic in week 2. As an outsourcing option has been found for plastic, the focus needs to move towards glass and cardboard/paper.


Glass outsourcing options were explored in January, and found to be not viable due to glass density + low selling price (Results to be posted:
