Glacier National Park Lodges, operated by Xanterra, recently started a recycling program on its Columbia Falls property and is opening the program to the community.
Several receptacles for glass are on the property on U.S. 2.
Working with New World Recycling, Xanterra hopes to get 70,000 pounds of glass to provide the flooring for its transportation garage being built this year. A large Dumpster for aluminum and tin, mixed paper, cardboard and No. 1 and No. 2 plastics is across the parking lot from the glass receptacles.
The program is limited to recyclables; no trash is being accepted.
