PA Resources Council August Schedule For Traveling Glass Recycling Bin In Allegheny County

The Pennsylvania 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 weeklong engagements in Allegheny County during August include--

-- August 13 – 18: South Park VIP Lot, Corrigan Drive and 100 Acres Drive hosted by Allegheny County; and

-- August 27 – September 1:  Deer Lakes Park Veterans 2 lot, Mahaffey Road near round-a-bout  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.

During the first half of 2022, PRC’s glass recycling program has enabled 21,000 households in western Pennsylvania to drop 420 tons 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.
