Glass Recycling Lifecycle: from consumer to recycling, to manufacturing and back to a store shelf.

We’re rolling out big things this year.

You’ll have more options starting later this year with glass recycling right at your doorstep. You heard that right; by mid-2021, Prism will be expanding services to include convenient residential curbside subscriptions and commercial pick-up. Keep an eye on our website, or even better, sign up for our newsletter to know when curbside glass recycling will be available to you.

What can you recycle?

Drop-off your glass bottles and jars (any color) used for food, beverages, candles, perfumes or colognes at any of our 15 drop-off boxes located across Erie County, PA. Containers must be rinsed of residue and free of corks, caps, and lids. We cannot take other glass products because they are made or composed differently than container glass. Learn about glass items we cannot recycle and why.
