TRAVELING GLASS RECYCLING BIN TO VISIT ALLEGHENY COUNTY PARKS

Posted by: Mary Beth Mueller on February 9, 2023

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald has announced that for a third year the county has partnered with PRC to offer its Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program in county parks.

“Recycling glass is good for our community. It saves energy needed to create new glass and reduces air and water pollution from creating new glass, and it also reduces the space needed in landfills,” said Fitzgerald.  “I’m thrilled that we’re able to again offer this program to county residents in cooperation with PRC, and welcome residents to explore our county parks while they’re there.”

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.
