Successful Glass Recycling in Rural Communities
The Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) is hosting a webinar featuring Bonnie Bethune, NRRA Sr. Member Services Representative, and three NRRA member communities to discuss glass recycling.
Developing and maintaining a successful glass recycling program in a rural community may seem like a daunting task to many. This webinar will feature three rural recycling centers that have been successfully collecting post-consumer glass and the non-profit organization they are working with to consolidate and ship the glass to a company that preps it for use by a fiberglass manufacturer. The presenters will talk about their strategies for educating residents about the importance of glass recycling, minimizing contamination, storing the collected glass, and accessing end markets.
