Glass Crushing Pilot Program

Waste Management stopped accepting glass in their single-stream recycling  in the winter of 2019.  Since then, Waste Loop has been working hard to find solutions for the community to divert glass out of the landfill.  Through a generous donation from Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, Waste Loop received a small glass crusher to help process local glass.  The glass crusher processes glass bottles into ‘cullet’, crushed glass that is similar to a sand/gravel mixture.  The cullet can be used similar to sand and gravel as an inert material in fill, landscaping and other creative construction.
