Send a link to a friend

[June 03, 2010]  The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Junior Woman's Club and Saint-Gobain Containers, will have its monthly glass collection on June 12 at the Logan County Fairgrounds between 9 a.m. and noon. Recyclers should use the Main Gate entrance off Postville Drive. The collection will be canceled in the event of rain

InsuranceParticipants are reminded that only container glass will be accepted during the collection, which means the container originally held either a food or beverage product. All colors of glass will be accepted. The glass recycling program does not accept broken glass due to safety issues.

Participants are asked to thoroughly rinse all containers and to remove all plastic or metal lids and rings. Labels, either foil or paper, may be left on the containers. Due to the large volume of glass being collected, the glass recycling program reserves the right to refuse any glass that does not meet the preparation guidelines.

The glass recycling program does not accept light bulbs or fluorescent lights, window glass, mirrors, ceramics, dishware or CorningWare items. Participants are asked to comply with the glass collection guidelines, as a single piece of ceramic material or a light bulb can contaminate an entire load of glass.

For more information on the county's recycling programs, visit the agency website at or contact the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency office at 217-732-9636.
