Will the Mayor's focus on recycling create a clear glass-only option?

Is there a place in Indy to take clear glass so it is not co-mingled and can be recycled once again to clear glass?



I’ve held on to this question for a while now because the answer was not…well…clear. At the moment, there are no recyclers taking just clear glass. Indiana Recycling Coalition is hopeful that there will be great progress with glass in Indianapolis in the next year or two because of the Mayor’s focus on recycling.

Speaking of progress with recycling, the Indianapolis Department of Public Works is seeking feedback on trash collection and recycling. Your responses to their survey will help the City improve the current services.
