SALT LAKE CITY — Curbside glass recycling programs are ready to begin in select Salt lake City neighborhoods.
City workers began delivering glass recycling bins Oct. 17 to residents in neighborhoods between State Street and 2000 East, including the Avenues and Capitol Hill. Collection will begin Nov. 1 and will take place once a month.
Those neighborhoods were selected because they had the highest number of subscriptions to the service, according to the city. The remaining areas of the city will have the service in April 2013. Glass drop-off centers, located throughout the city, will remain operational with the new service.
Curbside glass recycling pickup is a voluntary program and will cost residents $6 per month. Subscribers can sign up for automatic noticing that occurs the day before scheduled pickup via automated phone call, text message or email. All colors of glass can be placed in the bins.
Both the City's voluntary curbside program and commercial glass recycling are conducted through service agreements with Momentum Recycling.
Residents can subscribe to the service at www.slcclassic.com or by calling 801-535-6999.
