Logan County glass recycling program returns May 10

Logan County residents will again have the opportunity to recycle glass containers through the cooperative efforts of the Lincoln Womanís Club, the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, the Ardagh Group (formerly Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers) and the Logan County Fair Association. While glass collection is offered on a limited basis, it does have a positive impact in removing yet another item from the waste stream. Glass is not biodegradable; meaning it will not decompose over time. Glass can be recycled repeatedly. Since the programís inception in 2004, the glass-recycling program collected over 200 tons of glass locally. (Click here to continue)
