Recycle For Pennsylvania

Glass is an infinitely recyclable material with the ability to generate positive benefits for our community in more ways than one. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Owens-Illinois (O-I) Inc—the world’s largest manufacturer of glass containers—along with a handful of local businesses to help keep glass out of the trash.

What Can You Recycle?


Only glass bottles and jars (any color) used for food, beverages, candles, perfumes, or colognes are accepted at any of our drop-off locations. Containers must be rinsed of residue while lids, caps, and labels can stay on. Please do not put bags and boxes used to deliver glass into the drop-box. Please remember, place only glass bottles and jars in the drop boxes. Not all glass is the same, learn about glass items we cannot recycle and why.
