Glass Crusher

With COVID-19 stimulus funding, the City purchased a glass crusher in order to provide glass recycling services to our community. The glass will be pulverized into sand and aggregate which will be used for City projects and offered to community members as available. More information coming soon.

A video showcasing the glass crusher at work and information about uses will be posted soon.
