Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald has announced that the county has partnered with
the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) for a second year to offer its Traveling Glass Recycling Bin
Program in county parks. 

“Glass recycling continues to be an interest of residents in the county and with fewer curbside options
available, we’re delighted to provide this service at our county parks,” said Fitzgerald. “We know that
glass bottles and jars are 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without losing any quality,
making the effort to put these items back into the recycling ecosystem even more important. Thank you
to PRC and our county Parks Department for making this a priority for our communities.”

Individuals can drop off glass bottles, jars and jugs of all colors from 7 a.m. to sunset. No color sorting is required. Containers
should be empty and rinsed, with lids and labels still on. Bags and boxes used to deliver glass must be
discarded off-site.
