Glass Recycling Event!

The Pennsylvania Resources Council's Traveling Glass Recycling Bin comes to Sewickley's Riverfront Park Saturday, November 21 through Thursday, November 26!  

Glass is being removed as an "acceptable" material in single stream residential curbside recycling programs throughout Western PA and across the nation.  However, glass is still one of the most recyclable materials we generate in our homes and should not be trashed.  Therefore, the Borough of Sewickley, Owens Illinois, CAP Glass and Straub Brewery are sponsoring the glass recycling bin at Riverfront Park in Sewickley.

What to expect:

  • The event is contact free and self-serve.  Volunteers and staff will NOT be available to deposit your glass for you.  Anticipate having to deposit containers into the bin yourself (about 4 feet off the ground). 
  • All colors of glass bottles, jars and jugs ONLY are acceptable.
  • Lids and labels may be left on the containers.
  • Empty all containers.
  • Any boxes, bags, etc.. that were used to carry the glass must be taken off site for disposal.  Please take your containers or bags home for disposal or reuse.
  • The following items are NOT acceptable:
    • cut glass
    • glass bakeware
    • mirrors
    • porcelain and ceramics
    • stemware
    • lightbulbs
    • TVs
    • window glass
    • all other materials including recyclables

Collection hours are Saturday, November 21 through Thursday, November 26 from 6 AM to Sundown.  The bin is not accessible on Fridays!

Riverfront Park is located at 300 Chadwick Street, Sewickley, PA.
