Glass recycling in the Land of Enchantment

Glass recycling in the Land of Enchantment

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

The New Mexico Recycling Coalition has released a guide to assist in the use of recycled glass in the Land of Enchantment.

The NMRC, recognizing the limited glass container markets in the Southwestern state, coupled with the public demand for the recycling of this material, has compiled information based on other efforts, as well as providing four case studies on communities within New Mexico that are collecting, crushing and locally using this material themselves.

The group is highlighting such uses as turning recycled glass into road base, as an aggregate supplement, as well as for drainage and pipe laying projects and many other valuable, practical local public works, cement and roads projects.
