Ninety-three percent of residents and consumers still expect to be able to recycle glass. That’s according to the second annual survey by the Glass Recycling Coalition (GRC), which queried more than 300 public sector representatives, top glass industry professionals and materials recovery facility (MRF) operators in an open survey from May to June 2018.
“It is not surprising that 93 percent of residents and consumers expect to be able to recycle glass,” explains Jim Nordmeyer, vice president of sustainability for Owens-Illinois and GRC leadership. “This emphasizes glass as a core recyclable. Glass recycling concerns among public sector respondents declined from 65 percent in 2017 to 54 percent in 2018.”
