The Town of Oyster Bay has launched a pilot program for disposal of glass products; the first in Nassau County, The impetus was the new restrictions in the international recycling market which left towns all over the country without any way to dispose of their collected glass items in an environmentally sound way.
This pilot program will enable town residents to dispose of clean glass recyclables at five different locations. The glass will be recycled in a variety of ways, including new glass products and a fine powder for use as sand. There will be no charge to residents. All glass should be rinsed, with labels, lids and caps removed. Igloos are set up at convenient locations in the town, on the north and south shores.
