Close Loop is at the outskirts of an a dusty industrial campus called Westgate, about 10 minutes west of downtown Phoenix, right off the I 10 as you drive towards LA. Closed Loop Recycling is a site like many others: a big cavernous nondescript hangar surrounded by chain link fence enclosing a large yard. It is flanked on one side by a busy road where trucks speed menacingly, by another industrial site on one side, and by train tracks on the other two sides.
What makes it memorable, are the mountains of broken glass that glimmers beautifully in the sun. It looks like a treasure from far away, and for some, as the story will tell, it just might be.
