More Salt Lake City residents are recycling glass since curbside pickup started last fall. Today city officials celebrated the grand opening of a new facility that will increase the city’s capacity to process the glass and yield a more sustainable end product.
Salt Lake City residents will now find it easier to recycle their glass waste thanks to a new curbside glass recycling program that begins next month.
The program will at first only serve residents who live between State Street and 2100 east. Bins will be delivered in the next couple of weeks before the first scheduled collection on November 1. Next spring, it will expand to anyone who lives in Salt Lake City.
