Why NO Glass?

There are 2 main reasons the county had to make the difficult decision to discontinue curbside glass pick-up.

  1. Curbside collection has been hazardous; there have been injuries to staff collecting and processing the glass.
  2. The glass contaminates the other recyclables. If any glass combines with the other products–plastic, paper, tin–the entire load can be rejected.
    1. It is also costly; in one instance the contamination was so severe the county paid for costs to repair machinery damaged by glass in a paper load.
    2. To prevent these instances the glass is now collected at the drop-off locations for local reuse.
