Close the Loop with Bottle Underground

Glass is the most recyclable material, however, our current glass collection systems are ineffective.
On average 70% of post-consumer glass will end up in landfills, mostly due to contamination. Bottle Underground is committed to innovating and localizing systems for collection, recirculation, recycling, downcycling and upcycling. By maintaining a high-quality collection system, our team is dedicated to reducing waste now and making the best use of glass for our future.


Need centerpieces? Making your own dish soap? Let’s close loops locally with salvaged glass.


Every other Saturday we welcome volunteers into the recycling process, if you’d like to get involved with BU please sign up!


You don’t have to throw it all away. Bring glass back with Bottle Underground!
