♻️MO GLASS UPCYCLE, LLC is a local operation collecting glass, corrugated cardboard and aluminum in the lake area. Two primary goals: material collection which promotes landfill diversion and increase knowledge in our communities of upcycling through awareness and education.
♻️Camden, Miller, Laclede and Morgan counties produced over 15,000 tons of glass which was transported out for disposal. Through collection operations, MGU will be able to collect up to 75% of disposed glass allowing for the recovery and reuse of 11,250 tons per year.
♻️In 2021, each American on average used 650 pounds of paper which is 100 million tons of wood that could be saved if that paper was recycled. Americans used over 80 billion soda cans per year along with 11 million tons of glass jars. Through collection operations, MGU will be able to collect a large percentage of cardboard, aluminum and glass found in our local waste. Thus, allowing for the recovery and reuse of 180 tons of cardboard, 16,875 tons of glass and 8 tons of aluminum per year.
♻️MO GLASS UPCYCLE’s mission is to recover, recycle and reuse which promotes landfill diversion. MGU will continue to increase knowledge in our community of the importance of upcycling.
♻️MGU services Camden, Miller, Laclede and Morgan counties. We currently service commercial and residential routes.
Having over 30 years of experience owning restaurants, I have witnessed vast amounts of waste in the lake area contributing to our landfills. Most of the waste in my business is from glass bottles and corrugated cardboard.
For the last two years I've been touring recycling facilities and researching proper material storage. Through the process of my research and networking, I have made many connections which allowed my questions to be easily answered.
The answer is simple: It's time to introduce Central Missouri to "upcycling". MGU offers benefits of landfill diversion, lowering your waste costs and we move recyclable materials to facilities that manufacture Upcycled products.
