In Montana, the availability of services for recyclable materials like glass and plastic is limited; so here at Glacier, it takes a little extra effort to recycle all that we'd like. With that in mind, we're proud of the systems we have in place for the collection of recyclables.
We currently recycle everything that the market here accepts. We recycle office paper, #1 and #2 plastic, aluminum, and cardboard. We also take extra care to make sure we recycle used batteries and used CFL light bulbs as well as to motor oil, computers, and tires. In addition, we're making recycling easier for our visitors with places to recycle aluminum and #1 & #2 plastic near the entrance of every campground and near high-use park facilities.
