Oseng-Rees Reflection has developed an innovative way of recycling glass bottles to make sustainable, decorative panels for architectural applications. Once the contents of glass bottles have been consumed, they tend to be put in a mixed colour glass skip and collected for recycling. These bottles typically end up being down cycled to make low value products such as filter beds and aggregates. Oseng-Rees Reflection, based in Swansea, is now up cycling recycled glass bottles into a sustainable material that is aesthetically pleasing and suitable for interior and architectural installations, wall panels and tiles.
