What are the next steps for glass recycling in Laramie?

As of 8/7/2021 the City of Laramie is accepting glass bottles and jars free of charge at the recycling center located at the Laramie Landfill.  Please remove any caps, lids and corks.  There is no need to separate the glass by color.  Please do not try to recycle glass in the single stream recycling.  If you do put glass in the blue lidded container it will be treated as trash. 

Public meetings have been held to provide information, and gather citizen input. To date rate payer cost increases have been a contentious proposition. Any changes need support from citizens and elected officials to incorporate into the fiscal budget.
