We have known plastic glazing for a long time. The windows of the “first wave” were of insufficient quality. They were often installed incorrectly due to little experience in installation. In this regard, many owners of problematic glazing are interested in the issue of disposability. Europe has long studied all the ins and outs of the problem and found a solution: Since plastic isn’t subject to rapid decomposition and significantly pollutes the environment, it should be recycled.
Since there are really few processing plants, and they cannot be found in every locality, the issue of recycling old windows is very acute. Companies involved in the installation of glazing don’t undertake recycling. Therefore, the issue of what to do with the old PVC windows and doors is worth considering in advance.
