PRC aims to support counties and municipalities as they establish permanent glass recycling drop-off stations for their residents. In Western PA, permanent glass recycling drop-off sites can be found at the locations listed below. For all locations, please practice good glass recycling etiquette including:
- Collect ONLY glass bottles, jars, and jugs (all colors, consult site instructions for color separation information).
- No window glass
- No antique ‘cut’ glass or ‘milk’ glass
- No drinking glasses or stemware
- No ceramics
- No glass cookware, such as Pyrex or Corningware
- No plastic bags, paper bags, or cardboard
*COVID-19 UPDATE: PRC cannot verify that all services below are in operation during the current shutdown period. Please call the relevant contact number to verify hours of operation before utilizing these services.
