PA Resources Council August Schedule Of Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Program Appearances In Allegheny County

The PA Resources Council
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’s week long engagements in August 2021:

-- July 31 – August 5: Quaker Valley High School (Allegheny County) Lower lot (off of Rte. 65), 625 Beaver Street, Leetsdale, PA 15056 hosted by Quaker Valley School District and Quaker Valley Council of Governments

-- August 7 – 12: Harrison Hills Park (Allegheny County) Yakaon Shelter lot, 5200 Freeport Rd, Natrona Heights, PA 15065 hosted by Allegheny County

-- August 14 – 19: Moon Township Public Works Facility (Allegheny County) special collection hours at this site: Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; Mon – Thurs 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  1115 Stevenson Mill Road, Coraopolis, PA 15108 hosted by Moon Township

-- August 28 – September 2: Bellevue Municipal Parking Lot (Allegheny County) Between Meade Avenue and S. Sprague Avenue, Bellevue, PA  15102 hosted by Bellevue Borough and Quaker Valley Council of Governments.

Last year, PRC’s glass recycling program enabled 15,000+ households in western Pennsylvania to drop off 540,000 pounds of bottles, jars and jugs for recycling.

“The bin visits various locations on a weekly basis from Saturday through Thursday, typically from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and provides residents with a safe method for recycling glass while eliminating the need to interact with other individuals or touch shared surfaces,” according to PRC Recycling Markets Program Manager Ashley DiGregorio.  

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.
