Glass Recycling Events In Pittsburgh
The Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) is hosting a series of “pop-up” glass recycling collection events in response to the sudden removal of glass from many of the region’s residential curbside recycling programs. Residents can drop off all colors of glass bottles, jars and jugs at no cost.

Visit www.prc.org/glassrecycling to view the current list of events. Check back at www.prc.org for updates.
