The Logan County Joint
Solid Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Woman's Club and
Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers, will host the monthly glass collection on
Saturday, Sept. 14, 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 or extreme heat. Glass is not to be left
at the site prior to the hours of the collection.
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
