The Pennsylvania Resources Council Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program is scheduled to provide a free recycling service the week of April 15 - 20 at Settler’s Cabin Park in the Wave Pool parking lot, Collier.
Individuals can drop off glass bottles, jars and jugs of all colors (no color sorting required), from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. throughout that week. Containers should be empty and rinsed, with lids and labels still on. Bags and boxes used to deliver glass must be discarded off-site.
The program provides residents with a higher quality glass recycling option than typical curbside programs, ensuring that glass deposited into the bin meets the highest standards and can be fully recycled. Last year, PRC’s glass recycling program enabled 45,000 households in Western Pennsylvania to drop off nearly 2 million pounds of bottles, jars and jugs for recycling.
“A bottle, jar or jug dropped in the bin today could be recycled and back on a store shelf in less than 30 days,” according to PRC Glass Program Coordinator Simon Joseph.
PRC’s traveling program is sponsored by Owens-Illinois, Inc. and CAP Glass and is made possible through a partnership with Michael Brothers Hauling & Recycling.
