[July 09, 2012]
The Logan County Joint
Solid Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Woman's Club and
Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers, will have its monthly glass collection on
Saturday at the Logan County Fairgrounds between 9 a.m. and noon.
Participants should use the Main Gate entrance.
The collection will be canceled in event of inclement weather or
Visit Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency on
Facebook for current information, updates and cancellation notices.
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. Glass is not to be left at the
site prior to the hours of the collection.
The glass recycling program does not accept light bulbs,
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.
