Blount County is looking into purchasing a glass mill machine that will produce sand from recycled glass. The sand "is smooth enough to dip a hand into without getting cut"

The sand "could be used to partially fill county demand for gravel, and eventually even generate revenue."

[County Mayor Ed] "Mitchell said glass is “probably the largest” contributor to volume in the landfill."

"The department has been taking notes from Cumberland County, which currently hosts a glass recycling mill."

Pretty cool. Seems like a great idea.
