Broken Glass to Working Class

Rocky Mountain College

Broken Glass to Working Class partners with The Hub, to combat homelessness and re-purpose glass waste. Homeless individuals are provided a source of income while learning the job skills. This is key since shipping glass waste to another state is cost prohibitive. Montana creates more than 48,000 tons of glass annually, but has no way to recycle it. Broken Glass to Working Class aims to divert some of this waste away from the landfill and back into peoples’ homes.

Rocky Mountain College Enactus' proposal puts the students at the forefront of training these employees without homes, marketing the glass products and ensuring the financial sustainability of the project so it continues beyond year one.
