[October 08, 2012]  The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Woman's Club and Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers, will have its last monthly glass collection for 2012 on Saturday at the Logan County Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to noon.

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 formerly held either a food or beverage product. All colors of glass will be accepted. The glass recycling program will no longer accept broken glass due to safety issues.

Participants are asked to thoroughly rinse all containers and remove all plastic or metal lids and rings and foil labels. Paper labels 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.

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.
