2024 Traveling Glass Recycling Program

Glass recycling page

Allegheny County's Department of Sustainability and PRC has rolled out a Traveling Glass Recycling program. This self-serve glass drop-off site travels to various locations around the county, making it easier to recycle glass. 

Each week-long collection event runs Sunday - Thursday. Bins placed in county parks are available from 7 am - dusk each day.

Why recycle glass?

Glass is still one of the most recyclable materials generated in homes, and should not be trashed. Glass bottles and jars are 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without losing any quality, which makes the effort to put these items back into the recycling ecosystem even more important.

What types of glass are acceptable? 

Check the flyer to see what can be recycled(PDF, 1MB) in the Traveling Glass Bin program.  

How should glass be prepared? 

Containers should be empty and rinsed. Lids and labels don't need to be removed. Please remember that any bags and boxes used to carry the glass must be discarded off-site.

Thank you for recycling!
