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.  

Glass Hauling

With support from the Icicle Fund River Grant and community donations, Waste Loop  has set up glass hauling to Strategic Materials in Seattle.  Glass is currently accepted during all hours of operation at the Leavenworth Recycling Center (Wednesday 4:30pm-6:30pm & Saturday 11am-3pm).  

Glass drop-off guidelines: No food debris or liquid, no caps or corks.  Glass can have labels on it.

Glass Crushing Pilot Program

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.
