Why can't recycle glass on campus?

Unfortunately, the university’s recycling facility partner, Republic Services does not received glass. The market for glass is very poor, with no manufacturer who wants to purchase old glass to make something new. This is why it is so important for all of us to purchase items that contain recycled content. When people buy recycled-content items, there is an incentive for companies to use recycled content in their products. As the demand for recycled content increases, recycling facilities are able to not only sell the material they collect, but can often also make enough money to reduce what customers (like Southeastern) have to pay for the recycling service.
