One item that was noticeably absent from this portfolio of sanitation services was the inability to recycle glass products. However, beginning next week West Valley City will offer an around the clock glass recycling drop off location. The official release from the City is below:
West Valley City – Beginning March 1, 2013, West Valley City will partner with Waste
Management of Utah and Momentum Recycling to provide a glass recycling drop-off location. The
drop-off bin will be located at the West Valley City Public Works building at 2805 South 3600
West. The bin will be accessible seven days a week.
Waste Management will deliver the donated glass to Momentum Recycling, a local glass recycler.
Momentum Recycling will turn the recycled glass into high-quality raw materials for making a wide
range of products including fiberglass, containers, water filters and more.
General Rules for the Glass Recycling Drop-Off:
Glass bottles and jars only.
All colored glass is acceptable, including broken bottles and jars.
Do NOT place items outside of the bin.
Dishes, plates, glasses, coffee pots
