Have you ever wondered where all those broken windscreens go?
People always ask me “what happens to the old windscreens”, In today’s new’s we are going to tell you. All my old car windscreens go into a recycling skip, from there they go on to a recycling plant where the laminate gets separated from the glass. The recycled glass they make things like beer bottles, milk bottles, flat glass, fibreglass etc.

When is a windscreen repair not a windscreen repair?
A windscreen repair is not a windscreen repair when its already been done. All this week we can report that an increase in the windscreen repairs we’ve been out to that have already been done. The reason for this is poor repairs being done in the first place. Look at the picture above it shows a completed repair. To a normal person looking at that, they would say it’s a fresh windscreen repair and call us out to fix it. There is nothing we can do with a repair if it’s already been done. !00% of our repair calls this week was like above.
