Yes, fiberglass is recyclable. Unfortunately, over the 8 decades that it has been in existence, only one company has been able to develop a way to recycle it successfully. What is more problematic is the fact that these recycling services aren’t available on a large scale, which means that the bulk of fiberglass ends up as toxic waste. This small, fragmented fiberglass recycling market also faces the problem of offering very little in terms of returns, as the price for the recycled product is too low to justify the process.
