Recycle Utah wants to offer continuous glass recycling for Summit County.
The nonprofit organization has recycled glass on and off for the past 24 ½ years, and would like to make it a permanent service.
The trick, however, is the logistics.
“We would do it when we had someone to deliver our bin to the Salt Lake valley,” said Insa Riepen, Recycle Utah executive director. “We would collect the glass here and then transport it down the canyon, but we couldn’t guarantee that we could do it because we needed to contract the haulers and the sorters.”
