Recycling glass becomes more viable in Steamboat thanks to Broomfield processing plant 8.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Discarded beer bottles never looked as good as they do now after Momentum Recycling opened a glass sorting, cleaning and crushing facility in Broomfield. A Denver spokesman for Waste Management, the largest trash hauler in Northwest Colorado, confirmed Tuesday that his company began a week ago trucking recycled glass containers from its giant materials recycling facility (MRF) to Momentum. The company has contracted with two different Front Range glass bottle manufacturers that supply the Anheuser Busch bottling plant near Fort Collins and the Miller/Coors plant in Golden. In a story about Momentum’s new $11 million plant, the Denver Post reported that the two bottle manufacturers, Owens-Illinois in Windsor and Rocky Mountain Bottle Company in Wheat Ridge, combined to make 2 billion bottles a year. And now, Momentum has stepped in with the capacity to process up to 80,000 tons of glass a year, with all but 15 percent of that going to the bottle makers. “It’s very exciting our glass is being recycled,” ...

Utah, Kennecott rank high in EPA's list on toxic materials 26.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah has emerged as one of the nation’s biggest releasers of toxic materials, jumping from 17th in 2005 all the way to fourth in the latest inventory from the Environmental Protection Agency, which includes data from 2015. Utah trails only Alaska, Nevada and Texas.
