Why is there an additional fee for glass recycling in my area?

Excellent question! Glass cannot be combined with your single stream items due to contamination. Therefore, it must be sorted and hauled separately, which is very costly to do. The reasoning for this is because glass costs a significant amount more to recycle than your single stream items, and some Material Recovery Facilities do not accept it, leaving us with little options to recycle your glass and having to haul it much farther to a facility that will.
