Utah’s Salt Lake County Expands Curbside Glass Recycling Services

In Salt Lake County, Utah, Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling has partnered with Momentum Recycling to expand its curbside glass pickup to 30,000 residents in Millcreek, Holladay, Cottonwood Heights and Murray.

The program, which started in August 2015 with just a few customers, has helped divert more than 26 tons of glass from the landfill.

The glass recycling program costs $8 a month and is optional to residents.
