“WARMing Up to New Markets”

·         Two University of Wyoming students researched possible materials and markets for Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling (ISWR) to consider for expanding the current recycling program.

·         Materials researched: Cartons/Tetra Pak, glass, Expanded Polystyrene, tires, carpet and carpet pad, mattresses, asphalt shingles, rigid plastics and plastics 3-7, and gypsum board.

·         Materials were ranked based on market viability, location of facility, and if the material is being recycled or used as waste-to-energy.

·         Cartons/Tetra Pak topped the list as a potential new material for Teton County to accept for recycling. ISWR will continue to monitor regional recycling opportunities for this commodity and provide updates as markets develop.

·         To view the students’ report or request additional information, please contact Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling at (307) 733-7678.
