May 5, 2018

SPARTA, NJ – The ground breaking ceremony for the new Pace Glass Recycling facility took place on May 1 in Sparta, NJ. Businessman Efstathios Valiotis, one of the founders, said it will be the largest glass recycling plant in the world, with an area of four hundred acres. About 20 to 30 tons of glass will be recycled per week at the facility.

Among the speakers at the event was U.S. Representative Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) who noted that the effort was an example of the public and private sectors working together.

Valiotis thanked everyone and noted that he has done business in New Jersey for many years. He told The National Herald that not only will the facility create 150 jobs in the area, it will also help the environment by recycling glass bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills. Valiotis noted that many countries in Europe do a much better job in terms of recycling and the new facility in New Jersey will help the United States catch up. He also told TNH that he hopes many more recycling plants will open.

Valiotis’ son George, is the CEO of Pace Glass. He noted that “there was about 6 to 7 million tons of glass recycled in this country last year. And this facility alone will produce 800,000 tons, so we’re doing our part to raise the amount of cullet level in the U.S.,” NJTV News reported.

Among those in attendance at the event were Andover Township Mayor Janis McGovern and Pace Glass COO Michael Mahoney.

The recycling facility is expected to open in about 8 months.
