The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) presented an award for Outstanding Achievement in Recycling to Global Recycling Solutions (GRS) of Monmouth County, N.J. The company was recognized for creating a stable market for mixed broken glass, a material that often presents problems for recyclers. GRS accepts the mixed glass directly and from other facilities and pulverizes it into an aggregate. This eliminates the need for sorting and produces a material useful in filtration and as landfill cover. GRS then offers the processed glass to Monmouth County at no cost.
