[June 04, 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
June 9 at the Logan County Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to noon.
Participants should use the Main Gate entrance.
The collection will be canceled in event of inclement weather.
Participants are reminded that only container glass will be accepted
at 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 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 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 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.
