Momentum Recycling was founded in 2008 with the goal of helping communities move towards zero waste. While this may seem like a daunting goal, we believe that together, by taking small but important steps, we can make great progress.
Momentum Recycling currently operates a glass recycling plant in Salt Lake City, UT and opened a new state-of-the-art Colorado facility in 2016 that is a bottle-to-bottle glass recycling plant.
Current state of glass recycling in Colorado: The Front Range introduces ~10,000 tons of glass into the waste stream each month. Roughly 1/3 of this is collected in recycling containers (either single stream or source separated). Only the source separated or drop-off glass (which is ~10-15% of the total) is clean enough for use in bottle manufacturing. Momentum’s facility now produces high-quality cullet (recycled glass) for use in bottle manufacturing and in other local industries.
Introducing Momentum Recycling’s Colorado Glass Recycling Plant
Momentum Recycling’s primary goal is to leverage our industry-leading technology to make glass recycling simple and effective for Colorado.
When glass recycling is successful, we are able to develop new, local markets and applications for recycled glass that currently do not exist.
Momentum recycling is excited to become an active, positive member of the Colorado business community and collaborate with local organizations to advance recycling, sustainability & environmental goals.
