PA Resources Council Announces 4 Traveling Glass Recycling Bin Locations In Allegheny, Mercer Counties During May

PA Resources Council, partners host four Traveling Glass Recycling Bin locations in Allegheny and Mercer counties during May.

PRC 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. 

The locations in May are--

-- April 30 – May 5: CITY OF HERMITAGE FIRE STATION #3 (Mercer County) 541 Mercer Avenue, Hermitage, PA 16148 (across from Morefield Cemetery) hosted by City of Hermitage

-- May 7 – 12: BURKETT SPORTS COMPLEX (Allegheny County) 5501 Steubenville Pike, McKees Rocks, PA  15136 hosted by Office of PA State Representative Anita Kulik

-- May 7 – 12:  SOUTH FAYETTE MUNICIPAL BUILDING (Allegheny County) 515 Millers Run Road, Morgan, PA 15064 hosted by South Fayette Township

-- May 14 – 19:  SETTLERS CABIN PARK (Allegheny County) Wave Pool parking lot hosted by Allegheny County

“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,” 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.

Last year, PRC’s glass recycling program enabled 30,000 households in western Pennsylvania to drop of more than one million 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.
