PA Resources Council: September Schedule Of Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Locations In Allegheny, Mercer Counties

On August 20, the
PA Resources Council released its September schedule of Traveling Glass Recycling Bin locations in Allegheny and Mercer counties.

PRC provides this 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.

“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.  

The September schedule includes these locations--

-- September 4–9: South Fayette Municipal Building (Allegheny County), 515 Millers Run Rd, Morgan, PA 15064, hosted by South Fayette Township

-- September 11–16: City of Hermitage Fire Station #3, (Mercer County), 541 Mercer Avenue, Hermitage, PA 16148 (across from Morefield Cemetery), hosted by City of Hermitage

-- September 18–23: Boyce Park (Allegheny County), Ski Lodge parking lot hosted by Allegheny County

-- September 25–30: Sewickley Riverfront Park (Allegheny County), 357 Chadwick Street, Sewickley PA 15143 hosted by Borough of Sewickley and Quaker Valley Council of Governments

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.

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.

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.
