Close the Glass Loop

Since joining Close the Glass Loop[1] in 2021, HOTREC has supported the platform’s ambitious objectives to reach 90% of glass collected for recycling by 2030.

In September, HOTREC took part in the 5th CGL Board Meeting to take stock of progress accomplished over the year. In 2020, in the EU27 and the UK, on average 79% of glass bottles and jars were collected for recycling (see more below).

Additionally, in the course of 2022 and 2023, CGL is performing a study dedicated to glass Packaging in the HORECA sector to ensure exchange of best practices between the hospitality sector and the glass collection & recycling value chain. Stay tuned!

[1] Close the Glass Loop is an action platform bringing together 14 EU associations, including glass manufacturers, processors, food & beverage producers, hospitality, extended producer responsibility schemes and municipalities, to close the collection gap.
