[April 05, 2016]
- Logan County residents will again have the opportunity to recycle
glass containers through the cooperative efforts of the Lincoln
Woman’s Club, the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, Ardagh
Group 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. Last year the
glass-recycling program collected over 16 ton of glass locally.
A monthly collection will be held the second Saturday of each month
from April through October beginning Saturday, April 9th. Glass will
be collected from 9 AM and noon on the grounds of the Logan County
Fair. Recyclers should enter the fairgrounds using the Main Gate off
Postville Drive. The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency does not
accept glass at any of its recycling collection sites. Collections
will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather and/or excessive
Only container glass will be accepted for recycling which means it
originally held either a food or beverage product. Clear glass, as
well as amber, green and blue will be accepted. The glass-recycling
program will not accept light bulbs or florescent lights, window
glass, mirrors, ceramics, chinaware or corning ware items.

Residents are asked to thoroughly rinse all glass containers. Lids as well as
metal or plastic rings around the neck area of the container should be removed.
Paper labels can be left on the containers. Individuals are asked to follow the
guidelines outlined as one piece of ceramic, one light bulb or a metal neck ring
or lid can ruin an entire load of glass being processed for recycling. The
glass-recycling program reserves the right to reject any glass not meeting
Logan County residents expressed the desire to recycle glass and the
glass-recycling program is the direct response of local government, area
businesses and civic organizations to support local recycling efforts. For more
