Where could I find a glass recycling center here in Las Vegas ...
Glass is not so much recycled as used in lieu of sand in the formation of new glass. The purpose of recycling is to keep it out of landfill as much as to recover the sand.

Most glass manufacturers of glass products have good reliable supplies of sand or rock that they are using, and accept glass for recycling more as a courtesy than for need. 2 years ago Asker's Rating: Asker's Comment: sounds reasonable ...
