Recycling glass benefits art group
(Jan 23, 2013)
Recently the South Westminster Arts Group was awarded $1,000 in their efforts to raise awareness of the benefits of glass-only recycling from the Rocky Mountain Bottle Company, a division of Miller Coors, located in Wheat Ridge, Colo.
SWAG was one of four community groups in the North Metro area that was challenged to collect a combined total of 30,000 pounds of glass for recycling at the RMBC.
SWAG encourages residents to use the glass only recycle bin, located at 7225 Bradburn Blvd. in South Westminster, next to Larry’s Automotive.
Glass-only recycling increases the amount of useable glass for recycling. Recycling just one glass bottle saves enough energy to light a 100-watt light bulb for four hours, power a computer for 30 minutes or a television for 20 minutes.
