Recently, the issue of rational use of natural resources and increasing production waste has become increasingly important. Depending on the added metal, glasses with different softening (melting) temperatures are obtained. The purpose of this study is to reduce glass debris and process glass containers using fusing technology. Fusing is a technique of sintering glass in a furnace, the glass is sintered at a temperature of up to 800 degrees Celsius, at this temperature, the glass becomes homogeneous, fusing with each other. In total, glass container collection sites were investigated for collection and subsequent disposal during the six-month period from January to June 2020 on a quarterly basis. 3 glass container collection points were investigated. In total, during the study, 1075 thousand items of glass containers were collected with a total average of 506.2 ± 409.8 PCs. The most common was bottled glass from under alcoholic and beer products (923 thousand units), which amounted to 57.23% with an average of 289.7±242.2 units. In the production of glass, the so-called C. O. E (Coefficient of Expansion) index of glass is usually used, which serves as a determining factor in determining its compatibility for fusing. Accordingly, the use of alternative measures, accompanied by awareness-raising activities and investments in the collection and processing of glass containers, will further improve and preserve the cleanliness of the environment.
