Think of how much glass your household uses daily. No matter if you enjoy Mimosas during breakfast, wine for lunch, or bottled beer while watching the Saints win, Delta Builds wants to ensure the glass you use gets a new life. We aim to collect all of those bottles and jars from your house, then take them to our storage and processing facility. Every empty jar of artisanal vinegar, kombucha, mayonnaise, beer or gin can have a new, practical purpose in a world of sustainable consumption. Unfortunately, we can't use windows, mirrors or car wind screens.
Sign-up for service: enroll in twice monthly glass collection from your curb side. For the low, low, low enrollment fee of $20 you will receive a bin and a schedule. Services coming soon!
All glass is dropped off at our site where we have a special machine to pulverize the glass into all sorts of configurations from a fine dust to pea sized gravel.
The grits and grades of glass gravel, sand or dust will be sold by the tons for road construction, beach volleyball courts, coastal restoration and other cool products like countertops, Mardi Gras beads and, you guessed it, more glass bottles.
Delta Builds is coming for your GLASS in these and other neighborhoods:
Downtown / CBD
Lower Ninth Ward
Lower Garden District
Delta Builds will partner with workforce development agencies like JOB1, non-profit organizations and HBCUs to identify, train and support job creation. In addition to creating jobs and solutions to glass recycling, Delta Builds will diversify the economic landscape. But, most importantly, this kick glass operation will demonstrate to the community at large that tangible action-oriented solutions to racial, environmental and economic justice, even in Louisiana, are underway.
