DROP-OFF YOUR GLASS IN GRIMES!

Glass250x250

The crash of breaking glass is usually not a welcome sound. For Ripple Glass Recyclers, it’s music to their ears.

Metro Waste Authority has partnered with Ripple Glass to place a recycling container at the Metro Northwest Transfer Station in Grimes. Although glass is still accepted in your Curb It! recycling cart, glass that is not mixed with any other recyclables has a lot more uses.

Ripple Glass uses the ‘clean’ glass they collect to make new beverage containers and fiberglass insulation. Just six beverage bottles produce enough fiberglass insulation to fill a standard wall cavity!

A glass that is clean, meaning it hasn’t been mixed with anything else, can be recycled an infinite number of times.

All types of food and beverage glass is accepted, just like the items currently allowed in your Curb It! cart. Examples include wine or beer bottles of every color, spaghetti sauce, pickle or baby food jars to name a few.

Just look for the glass only container at the Metro Northwest Transfer Station; your walls will be saying cheers!
