#WhyWasteIt? The Logistics of Glass Collection

Here’s the scoop on the logistics of curbside glass collection. For program details, including information on how to sign up, check out “The Basics of Curbside Glass.”

Guest blog by Katie McKeon of Momentum Recycling.

The curbside glass recycling is a once per month collection that does not occur on your standard garbage day.

We have divided up the City into 20 different service zones, each having their own glass pick up date. Check out the map below to find your neighborhood glass pick up date.

Which neighborhood in Salt Lake City do you think produces the most glass per month?

Hats off to the folks living east of Liberty Park in Zone 101!  The average bin weighs 42.2 pounds each month. Coming in at a close second was zone 503 in Marmalade/Capitol Hill with average bin weights at 41.2 pounds per month.

[VIDEO] Take a ride with our driver! Check out this short video of one of the routes.

So, what happens to all that glass? Stay tuned to next week Wednesday’s #WhyWasteIt? blog about Utah’s new state-of-the-art glass recycling plant!

    How do we get a glass bin delivered to my house?

    • Hi Nicolle, if you live within the Salt Lake City boundaries, you can sign up for the curbside glass program online at http://www.slcgov.com/slcgreen/glassrecycling. You will need your water bill account number. After you register, $6 will be added to your monthly utility bill and your curbside bin will be dropped off. Let us know if you have any other questions!
