Recycled glass countertops are composed of 100% recycled glass (post consumer and pre-consumer) in a cement and petroleum based binder. A finished recycled glass countertop often ranges from 70 to 85 percent recycled content.

The glass used in recycled glass countertops is sourced form both post-consumer and pre-consumer sources. Post-consumer recycled glass sources are numerous, but the most common sources are curbside recycling and salvaged glass from demolished buildings.
