PRC’s Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program provides a free recycling service that rotates through a variety of locations in western Pennsylvania. This innovative 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.
PRC Traveling Glass Recycling Bin weeklong engagements in October 2022:
October 1 – 6 @ HERMITAGE (Lawrence/Mercer County)
541 Mercer Avenue (across from Morefield Cemetery), Hermitage, PA 16148
hosted by City of Hermitage

1058 Clinton Road, Clinton, PA 15026

“The bin visits various locations on a weekly basis from Saturday through Thursday, typically from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and provides residents with a safe method for recycling glass while eliminating the need to interact with other individuals,” according to Ashley DiGregorio, PRC Recycling Markets and Grants Manager.
Individuals can drop off glass bottles, jars and jugs of all colors (no color sorting 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.
PRC’s Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program is sponsored by Owens-Illinois, Inc. and CAP Glass and is made possible through a partnership with Michael Brothers Hauling & Recycling. For more information, visit prc.org/glass.
PRC SEEKING MUNICIPALITIES TO HOST 2023 GLASS RECYCLING ENGAGEMENTS
Municipalities interested in hosting PRC’s Traveling Glass Recycling Bin in 2023 can contact PRC at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit prc.org/glass to learn how to partner with PRC to establish a program to enable residents to recycle glass.
“PRC is continually seeking local government and commercial partners to help revitalize glass recycling through regional collaboration,” said DiGregorio. “Our municipal partners recognize that recycled glass is in high demand and wish to maintain vital recycling collection services for their residents, while business partners become increasingly aware of the multiple economic and environmental benefits of our program.”
