Last monthly glass collection of the year October 12
October 5, 2013, The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, in collaboration with the Lincoln Woman’s Club and Verallia Saint-Gobain Containers, will hold its last monthly glass collection for 2012 on Saturday, October 12th at the Logan County Fairgrounds between the hours of 9 AM and noon. The collection will be cancelled in event of inclement weather.
Participants are reminded that only container glass will be accepted during the collection. Container glass is any glass that used to hold either a food or beverage product. All colors of glass will be accepted. The glass-recycling program will no longer accept broken glass due to safety issues. Participants are asked to thoroughly rinse all containers and to remove all plastic or metal lids and rings and foil labels. Paper labels 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 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.
Information on the county’s recycling programs is available by contacting the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency Office at 217-732-9636 or by accessing the agency’s website at www.co.logan.il.us and selecting Joint Solid Waste.
