“PRC is excited to introduce this new opportunity for glass recycling in the Pittsburgh area that will not only provide a solution for residents but that keeps the supply of recycled glass flowing to the mills that consume it as a raw material,” said Stockdale.

The pop-up glass recycling network is sponsored by CAP Glass, Owens Illinois and Straub Brewery in conjunction with several local municipalities impacted by recent changes in curbside recycling regulations.  

“We commend the municipal governments who helped PRC develop this network for their strong commitment to recycling and leadership, and we thank Oxford Development, Quaker Valley School District and Avonworth Park for serving as site partners,” said Stockdale. “PRC hopes to expand this service by partnering with additional municipalities who also recognize that glass remains a valuable commodity with vibrant demand in the regional/national recycled materials marketplace.”
