After discovering that recycling at the community recycling center had come to a halt, Megan Clausen and Devyn Smith decided to do some research and create a solution to this problem.
Crushing glass bottles from local businesses and turning it into a sand bi-product prevents glass bottles from ending up in our landfills. It also produces an inexpensive product that has multiple uses. The fine sand product can be sold to the community and can be used in gardens, art, filling sand bags, patching roads and creating sidewalks.
