The Momentum Recycling clean glass recycling facility is set to open today, 11th April 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

The new facility is aimed at increasing the glass recycling capacity in Salt Lake City and will help reduce landfill waste.

“Expanding Salt Lake City’s glass recycling services is another step towards reaching our goal of zero waste,” said Salt Lake City Sustainability Director Vicki Bennett. “Every month over 125 tons of glass is diverted from the landfill through the City’s curbside and glass drop-off sites.”

The Salt Lake City Office of Economic Development, through the Revolving Loan Fund, provided a working capital loan that was instrumental in the development of the new glass facility.
