Dauphin County to stop collecting recycled glass on Aug. 1

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Dauphin County will stop accepting glass next month at its recycling center on Cameron Street and its nine drop-off sites.

Commissioner Mike Pries said recyclers are refusing to accept recycled glass because there’s no demand, and the county has been paying around $1,200 a month to dispose of it.

Pries said glass collection will resume if demand returns.

The county’s decision will not affect municipalities with their own recycling programs.

Harrisburg stopped collecting glass last year because of the cost.
