The End of Waste Foundation is built on the vision of producing a circular economy within the recycling industry, eliminating waste and fostering a revolutionary paradigm of shared responsibility.
Through our Recycling Traceability System™ (RTS™) we track quantities of glass from bin to bottle, ensuring efficiency and accountability. At each stage of recycling, we’re creating the opportunity to divert glass from landfills and give it a new life.
Our system is powered by environmentally conscious businesses and consumers who contribute to the Proof of Recycling Program which subsidizes the efforts made by our waste and recycling enrolled partners to divert recyclable materials from landfills.
Contributing individuals and organizations receive the Glass Recycling Certificate that validates the amount of glass saved from landfills and how much CO2 has been diverted from entering the atmosphere.
EOWF tracks glass waste from hauler, MRF, glass processor to manufacturer using proprietary software.
Once the traceability loop is closed and verified, EOWF creates a Glass Recycling Certificate based on real quantities of glass being recycled.
Environmentally conscious businesses and individuals acquire certificates to help increase recycling rates and offset their carbon footprint. Each ton of recycled glass is valued at $70.
65% of the contribution is returned to the system. $45.5 per recycled ton is distributed to MRFs and Processors. 20% is used for platform scaling and maintenance. 15% is used for education & R&D purposes. $15 per recycled ton is offered for investments in technology, workforce, R&D.
