MAY THE RECYCLING FORCE BE WITH YOU!
AWWU receives the 2018 Outstanding Supporter Award from ALPAR for utilizing recycled glass.

The Outstanding Supporter Award was given to Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility for making exemplary contributions towards local recycling of one of the most challenging materials to recycle - glass. Glass is challenging because while there are good markets for other materials both nationally and internationally, glass is a material best used as close to the source as possible because of its transportation challenges and low value. AWWU fought the battle and met the challenge! ALPAR’s 2018 Outstanding Supporter Award goes to Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility for its testing and use of Recycled Glass Aggregate in utility sewer and water projects.
