Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control Pilots Glass Recycling Initiative

The initiative aims to reduce the amount of broken bottles found throughout the state.

In an effort to reduce the amount of broken bottles found throughout the state, the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC) has launched a new glass recycling initiative.

As part of the initiative, DABC will utilize a new glass collection pod provided by Momentum Recycling in the parking lot of the State Wine Store at 280 West Harris Avenue. The pod will remain in the parking lot for at least a month, and if deemed successful, the DABC plans to expand the program to other liquor stores in the state.

The pods will provide local residents with a free and convenient place to drop off their empty glass bottles.
