PLANS THAT FIT YOUR NEEDS
A Special Thanks to Our Lead Sponsor
What We Do
Montanans generate almost twice as much trash as the average American. Why is that? Glass is a major factor. Montana doesn’t have a glass recycling system, and there are no bottle makers in the state to melt and reuse our old bottles and jars.
Enter Recycling Works. We collect, crush, and store your glass locally, then ship it to Momentum Recycling in Salt Lake City. Momentum is the closest processing facility that efficiently processes glass, and will transform your old glass containers into new bottles and products like home insulation and sandblasting material. We are also thrilled to support local projects that utilize your glass for reuse purposes.
In addition to glass recycling, we also offer compost collection services. Your organic material will be delivered to Garden City Compost, who have perfected their composting methods and sell ready-to-use compost for your garden.
