The electrical behaviour of different glass compositions obtained from mixing waste glass deriving from a community glass recycling program and silicate waste from the incineration of municipal solid residues (from Reggio Emilia city) have been investigated as a function of temperature and frequency. The electrical and dielectric properties were related to structural studies performed on the same glassy materials. As the amount of incinerator wastes increases, on account of lower alkali and higher alkaline-earth content in the final glass composition, conductivity and dielectric losses decrease approaching the behaviour of type E glass fibres, so envisaging a possible use of waste-containing glasses in the production of high voltage insulators.
