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 September 2022:

September 3 – 8 @ SOUTH FAYETTE MUNICIPAL BUILDING (Allegheny County)
515 Millers Run Rd, Morgan, PA 15064
hosted by South Fayette Township

September 17 – 22 @ HARTWOOD ACRES PARK (Allegheny County)
Amphitheater overflow lot, Middle Road
hosted by Allegheny County

“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.

During the first half of 2022, PRC’s glass recycling program has enabled 21,000 households in western Pennsylvania to drop 420 tons of bottles, jars and jugs for recycling.

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.
