Ellensburg Glass Recycling Cooperative
Dropping 9 truck loads of bottles...
Thank you to the City of Ellensburg for issuing EGRC $9,000!
A Community Grant of $4,000 and a Stormwater Utility Grant of $5,000 are helping to close the loop and reduce the waste from glass! Thanks to these city grants EGRC can increase production and better market these products made from your glass containers.
Two main uses of this money are: supporting a Farmers Market booth to educate the community about the materials being created; and purchasing a LVScreener to sieve New Sand and make it more marketable for industrial and home/garden uses. Learn more(coming soon)
Last year EGRC crushed 28.5 tons of glass bottles.

That's about 10% of what Kittitas county recycled annually before 2019!
