High-Impact Projects

Glass Recycling
at the Residential Recycling Center

When you separate your glass, you keep broken glass out of single stream recycling and your glass goes off to be made into new glass.

Estes Recycles worked with the town, county, Waste Management and the Estes Park League of Women Voters to bring glass recycling to Estes Park.

Thank you for separating your glass!
