[August 04, 2011]  The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Junior Woman's Club and Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers, will have its monthly glass collection on Aug. 13 at the Logan County Fairgrounds between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon. Participants are to use the Main Gate entrance.

Glass is not to be left at the site prior to the hours of the collection. The collection will be canceled in event of inclement weather.

Participants are reminded that only container glass will be accepted during the collection. Container glass is any glass that 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, sleeves, 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.

Information on the county's recycling programs is available through the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency by contacting the office at 217-732-9636 or by visiting the agency website at -- select "Joint Solid Waste Agency."
