Glass has no place in our system, that's why we ask you to keep it out of the garbage. If we receive glass into the plant within the garbage, it's abrasive to our machines, and if it gets over to the power plant, it creates slag in the boilers -- leading to costly removal!
Slag on boiler walls
Place your container glass into the openings on the top of the bin; it will be picked up and taken to the Resource Recovery Plant to be recycled into new jars/bottles or fiberglass insulation at Ripple Glass in Kansas City, Missouri.
