Kicking Glass to the Curb
The Public Works Department is preparing to launch its cutting edge glass compacting program in an effort to save the city thousands of dollars a year in recycling expenses and meanwhile alleviate the expense of acquiring aggregate for construction projects. This state of the art technology promises to keep over 100,000 pounds of glass out of the landfill and meanwhile provide an affordable alternative to the crushed stone that has historically been used as a base material in most of the cities infrastructure projects. Keeping it "green" is all in a days work for Gallatin Public Works.
