Does anyone have a case study on community glass recycling. Specifically the cost/ton to crush/pulverize and screen into usable traction control sand for winter applications?

Here there is a very interesting case study by the government of Oregon. It is not as specific as you want but they give a lot of figures to understand the cost of processing and collecting glass and to give a quantitative estimate of the average saving caused by recycling.

You can find much more examples googling , like this British one, which is much more general (they consider different residues, not just glass) and more qualitative than quantitative.
