Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program

The Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program provides a free recycling option using a bin that rotates through locations in Western Pennsylvania, the release said.


According to the release, last year at county part events, people recycled 10.2 tons of glass which reduces CO2 emissions by .029 tons.


Glass bottles, jars, and jugs of all colors are being accepted with no color sorting required.


The release stated that containers should be empty and rinsed with lids and labels still on. Bags and boxes used to deliver glass must be discarded off-site.
