Momentum Recycling, headquartered in Park City, Utah, has announced plans to official open its new bottle-to-bottle recycling plant in Boulder, Colorado, on February 22. When open, the bottle recycling plant will be the first of its kind in the state. Further, Momentum says that the Colorado facility will be the first for the company outside of Utah. The company’s facility in Utah has been in operation since 2008.
“We’re excited to be opening this truly innovative facility, especially in Colorado, a state that has put such a significant focus on strong recycling practices,” says John Lair, president and CEO of Momentum Recycling. “This facility will produce high-quality recycled glass for use by local bottle manufacturers and help the state of Colorado move towards a goal of zero waste.”
Momentum Recycling currently recycles glass from communities throughout Colorado including Boulder County, Larimer County and Denver County. In addition, Momentum Recycling has partnered with companies such as Waste Management, Eco Cycle, Alpine Disposal, Bestway Recycling, Iron Woman Construction, Owens Illinois and CDPHE — Solid Waste Division, to help move Colorado towards a goal of better recycling practices and zero waste.
The company is seeking three types of glass: clear, green and amber. The bottles brought into the facility will come from single-stream operations.
