♻️ SMALL ACTIONS, BIG RESULTS: WALPOLE, NH TAKES ON GLASS RECYCLING! ♻️
In 2021, Walpole residents sent in their rinsed, clean glass to be recycled - over 45 TONS of it, to be exact! That glass was then sent to a vendor in Canada who processes the glass into fiberglass insulation, giving this eternally-recyclable material a second, more permanent life!
By recycling all that glass, Walpole residents conserved the energy equivalent of 1,231 gallons of diesel from being burned!
That's like filling up just over 8 semi-trucks with 150 gallon tanks!!
GREAT JOB WALPOLE!!
