Adams County, Penn. Is adding a drop-off collection site for glass for its community. This comes as the Adams County Community Foundation announced multiple grants through the Adams County Fund for the Environment, which includes $10,000 going to Adams County officials to construct a glass recycling facility.
The money is going toward building a concrete pad and containment area and the construction work is said to be minimal and will be done in-house adducing to Solicitor Molly Mudd.
Officials are hoping to have the site up and running by mid-summer, according to Mudd. The site will have scheduled drop-offs for glass, which will be handled by volunteer groups.
“We are not adding to the job duties of current staff or hiring any additional county staff,” Mudd said. Mudd continued to say the county is in support of this mission to keep glass out of landfills, “It’s the right thing to do.”
