Resources for Promoting & Supporting Municipal Glass Recycling Programs

Over the past two years, the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) has provided technical assistance to two regional recycling centers in Maine that have started new source separated glass collection programs—Unity Area Recycling Center and NASWA.  These two programs have approached glass recycling differently.  Unity is collecting clean glass containers and crushing them, while NASWA is collecting clean whole bottles.

As part of the work to support these programs, NERC has developed a variety of resources which are available on its website.  These include videos of the glass collection programs, marketing materials (press releases, glass recycling signs and handouts), and glass collection safety posters and safety guides. 

Following are links to these resources:
