    Glass Recycling
  • Not available curbside
  • Ripple Glass has set up collection dumpsters throughout the KC metro area (http://rippleglass.com/where-to-recycle.php)
  • Ripple Glass was developed by Boulevard Brewery because they didn't want to be part of the problem.  There wasn't a local facility to process recycled glass bottles
  • Please don't throw away your glass bottles in your household waste container (see facts below)


    Glass Recycling Facts* 
  • Recycling just one glass bottle saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt light bulb for four hours. (Imagine how long it would light a compact fluorescent!)
  • Container glass is 100% recyclable, can be recycled endlessly, and is a primary ingredient in fiberglass insulation and new glass containers.
  • Burying perfectly good glass in the landfill wastes all the material, energy, and labor that went into making it.
  • Using recycled glass produces 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than creating new glass (or fiberglass) from raw materials.
  • Every ton of glass that's recycled results in more than one ton of raw materials saved. That's 1,300 lbs. of sand, 410 lbs. of soda ash, 380 lbs. of limestone, and 150 lbs. of feldspar.
  • A six-pack of recycled beer bottles produces enough fiberglass insulation to fill a standard wall cavity.
  • Kansas Citians consume approximately 80,000 tons of container glass each year. In the past, because of the difficulty and inconvenience, only about 5% was recycled. (Nationally, the average recycling rate is over 30% and climbing; in many places in the world, it's north of 90%!)
  • Glass isn't collected in most area curbside recycling programs, and for good reason. When mixed with other recyclables, broken glass degrades and contaminates those materials, causing them to be "downcycled" into lower quality products.
