Curbside pickups every week for compost and once-a-month for glass. Just place our container(s) next to your primary trash bin the night before your scheduled pickup date.

What We Do
Montanans recycle 13% less than the average American. Why is that? Glass is one of the answers. Montana has not yet established a glass recycling infrastructure, and there are no bottle manufacturers in the state to melt and reuse our glass.
We collect, crush, and store your glass locally, then ship it down to Momentum Recycling in Salt Lake City. Momentum is the closest processing facility with the means to efficiently create and use aggregate. They do a fantastic job of separating and sorting glass so it can be turned back into bottles and products like home insulation and sandblasting material. We are also happy to support local projects that utilize our glass for reuse purposes.
Your organic material will be collected and delivered to Garden City Compost. Garden City has perfected their composting methods and sell ready-to-use compost for your garden.
