WMI Celebrates Grand Opening of New Recycling Facility

Waste Management Inc. (WMI) recently announced the grand opening of a state-of-the-art glass recycling facility by its glass processing business, CRA-Recycle America. The new facility provides a steady source of high-quality, recycled glass for Gallo Glass Co., a subsidiary of E & J Gallo Winery, Union City, Calif. The facility features a fully automated glass sorting line that removes foreign material -- including ceramic and metal -- from three-mix glass, which is a combination of clear, brown and green recycled glass. Since it began operations in June 2001, the Union City facility has provided 28,000 tons of quality recycled glass to Gallo Glass Co., which has, in turn, used the glass to produce new bottles. The facility has the capacity to process 160,000 tons of three-mix glass annually, or approximately 25 tons of glass per hour.
