Re: [GreenYes] glass recovery from commingled curbside program

So, I'm thinking that maybe we need to have lots of public "igloos" for glass scattered around a community that get serviced by the "hook and dump" trucks once every two weeks or so.  


Eric:
That's what is done pretty much through out Europe.  They don't want the glass in the burners as it melts with the metal in the ash, making the metal harder to recover.  I wonder how effective glass collection programs using drop off sites are in Switzerland, Holland and other European programs.
