Winelands: Consol Glass factory visit

Mensa Winelands invites you to join us at the Consol Glass Manufacturing Company in Bellville (now renamed ‘Ardagh Glass’), for an exclusive tour of their plant and recycling process, on Saturday 28 October.

You’ll witness how broken and waste glass is machine-sorted, and then melted and transformed from a liquid to ready-to-use bottles, and see the automated process by which glassware is packaged, ready for delivery.

Note that no persons are permitted into the plant if their arms and/or ankles are exposed – you are requested to wear long trousers, socks and sturdy shoes (no takkies or heels), and you should take a long-sleeved jacket to wear.

Consol will provide mop caps and safety goggles.

You’re welcome to bring a guest, but numbers are limited and you are urged to RSVP timeously.

RSVP: Winelands Secretary
