    University Housing's Dining Services is averaging 13,877 pounds of glass per year.

    The current total is 55,509 pounds of recycled glass! 

    That's almost 28 tons!


Housing Dining Services has begun recycling the glass wine and liquor bottles from their Catering Services operation, as of the end of July 2013.  There is a new company in Champaign-Urbana called Green Purpose, which is accepting the glass that Catering collects for recycling.
