Our solution

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.

Rocky Mountain Bottle Company is excited to be a partner with the End of Waste Foundation in their innovative efforts to increase glass recycling in Colorado. As a glass container manufacturer that is looking for opportunities to increase the amount of clean cullet that we can use in our furnaces, we want to do our part to support this initiative and take advantage of the closed-loop system that we have in this area.

We are proud to partner with the End of Waste Foundation to create more transparent and effective recycling systems. Ripple Glass recycles glass from Kansas City and over 100 communities throughout the Midwest. We have increased the glass recycling rate in Kansas City from 3% to 20%, but in recent years, that recycling rate has stagnated.
