About The Foundation

The Glass Recycling Foundation was created to help fill gaps in community glass recycling efforts. Across the country, there exists strong support and consumer desire to recycle glass, but many state and local governments struggle to recover glass due to a lack of investment by traditional waste management companies. GRF works to support these efforts by providing matching grants for equipment that helps these communities get started.
