The 2021 glass totals are in!
In 2018, Ripple Glass expanded glass collection to bars, restaurants, venues, apartments, condominiums, and other businesses. At the beginning of 2022, we announced that 300 businesses throughout the Kansas City metro had signed on to recycle glass with us.
We are thrilled to report that in 2021, those Ripple Certified businesses recycled nearly 1000 TONS of glass. Incredible! But, who recycled the MOST glass?
