[June 12, 2014]
The Logan County Joint Solid
Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Woman’s Club and the Ardagh
Group(formerly Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers), will hold its monthly
glass collection on Saturday, June 14th at the Logan County Fairgrounds (use
Main Gate entrance) between the hours of 9 AM and noon. The collection will
be cancelled in event of inclement weather or extreme heat.
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 or
florescent lights, window glass, mirrors, ceramics, dishware or
corning ware 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.
