Since glass was removed from Waste Management’s single-stream curbside recycling program, the Township has been working on a stand-alone glass recycling program. Continuing to put glass in your home curbside recycling bin can result in rejected loads at material recovery facilities or the glass may be used as landfill cover. To ensure glass could be recycled properly, the Township and State Representative Lori Mizgorski hosted three Traveling Glass Bin events in the Community Park presented by PRC. All three events proved to be a huge success, and also proved that our residents needed and wanted a glass recycling program.
A permanent glass recycling site has been established at the Hampton Municipal Complex. Look for the large blue glass recycling bin located between the rear of the Salt Storage Building and the Soccer Complex Parking lot. How to properly recycle glass in this bin:
• Place GLASS ONLY in collection bin
• No need to separate colors
• ACCEPTED GLASS – bottles, jars and jugs
• Bags and boxes used to deliver glass must be discarded off-site.
• NOT ACCEPTED GLASS – cut glass, glass bakeware, mirrors, porcelain and ceramics, stemware, window glass, light bulbs, televisions.
