2019 Brings New Changes for Municipal Glass Recycling
11 Feb, 2019

Municipal waste services across the U.S. are considering whether to eliminate or revamp curb side collection of glass for recycling.

The start of 2019 has brought important changes to municipal waste services across the country as they determine whether to eliminate or revamp curbside collection of glass for recycling.

In Mt. Lebanon, Pa., a suburb of Pittsburgh, the decision has been made to phase out the glass collection service. “The solid waste and recycling is collected contractually in our community, and the contractors that submitted bids for the new contract indicated that they would no longer accept glass in the recycling stream,” says Rudy Sukal, Public Works director.
