Mideast Israel Glass Mountains Photo Essay

In this Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016 photo, an employee checks the quality of glass bottles on the production line at Phoenicia Glass Works Ltd. factory in the southern Israeli town of Yeruham. Phoenicia Glass Works, Israel’s only glass container factory, produces one million containers a day. Some 300,000 bottles a day come out with defects, and the factory grinds them into shards and piles them in a desert lot to be melted into new bottles. The factory is in the middle of the desert, and works round the clock, every day of the year. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
