Anchorage, Alaska Ramps Up Commercial Glass Recycling

SEATTLE (Waste 360): Two years ago, Anchorage, Alaska, struggled with glass recycling, averaging about 1,200 tons of glass annually for recycling. But now, following a successful pilot program, one company operated by the municipality is ramping up commercial glass recycling.

For a monthly fee, Solid Waste Services will provide businesses like bars and restaurants with 96-gallon glass recycling bins. The bins will be picked up once a week, and the glass will be taken to Central Recycling Services, where it will be crushed and used as fill in construction projects, according to a report by KTVA.
