MOBERLY - The Moberly City Council is looking to change the city’s recycling methods, specifically at a new way to recycle glass.

Moberly Department of Public Works submitted a request for a grant through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources on Monday. Public Works is partnering with glass recycling company, Ripple Glass. Glass will be dropped off at a central location in Moberly and the company will pick it up and dispose of it.

Sanders said he hopes to get the grant by the end of the year and start working on the new methods by January. Public Works request almost $65,000 to fund the project.
