Send a link to a friend
[August 11, 2016] LINCOLN
- The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency in collaboration with
the Lincoln Woman’s Club will hold its monthly glass collection on
Saturday, August 13, 2016 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.
