Local Glass Recycling Sites 2020
Mt. Lebanon and other South Hills municipalities no longer accept glass items as a part of their recycling programs. The Eco-Justice Team will keep you apprised of various locations where you may recycle glass from your household. The sites listed here are in operation year-round but periodically there are pop-up or one-time collection sites. They will resume in the spring. We will post those events with as much lead time as possible.
Interesting Fact #1: 1 ton of carbon dioxide is reduced for every 6 tons of recycled container glass used in manufacturing.
Interesting Fact #2: Glass bottles and jars are 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without any loss in purity or quality.
Interesting Fact #3: Your glass bottles and jars can go from the recycling bin to the store shelf in as little as 30 days.
