Yes, glass recycling has a monthly curbside collection service for an additional fee.
Momentum Recycling provides Centerville residents the opportunity to subscribe to a monthly curbside collection of their glass. For just $8/month (plus a one-time fee of $25), residents receive their own 35-gallon grey cart specifically for collecting glass recyclables.
All colors of glass bottles and jars are accepted, and there is no need to rinse with water or remove labels. Momentum Recycling provides the monthly collection service, and bills residents directly. This optional service is not included in resident's monthly Centerville City Utility Billing rates.
What makes glass unique among other recyclable commodities (such as aluminum) is that it directly benefits Utah’s economy in that it is collected, processed, and used by local industry. Recycling glass helps create local jobs, extend the life of our landfills, and keeps waste disposal costs down.

If you flip your can upside down, shake it and nothing comes out, you’re good to go! As long as the can is empty and dry it is okay to be tossed in.
These are also recyclable, but they must be squeaky clean. The issue we have ran into is people tossing their dirty ones in, which means they will be landfilled. We have stopped saying we accept them for this reason. Usually when I get this question and I can tell they are diligent with their recycling, I will give them the explanation and give them the okay to toss them in, again as long as they’re clean.
We are in the process of removing aerosol spray cans from our guide as well, because they aren’t being emptied and there are some issues with hazardous waste. When people ask about this, I say that food spray cans (like oil sprays, whipped cream, etc.) can go in as long as they are completely empty. No cleaners, pesticides/insecticides or spray paint cans.
