Glass and Recycling

By October 16, 2019Announcements

The facility that we bring your recyclables to has asked that we remove glass from our recycling.  This means that we, Signature Waste, can no longer accept your glass recycling.  The recycling center we use tells us the expenses associated with recycling glass outweighs the value of recycling glass to begin with.  Please read the following article it goes into detail about the need and the issues of accepting glass.

High costs and limited markets puts a crack in glass recycling.

If you are looking for alternative solutions to recycle your glass bottles and material click on your area below for a list of community drop of sites where you can bring your sorted glass recycling.  These sites are able to continue recycling glass because they do not have the added expense of sorting glass bits out of co-mingled (or mixed) recycling material.
