Starting in March, the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) will introduce a series of “pop-up” glass recycling collection events in response to the sudden removal of glass from many the region’s residential curbside recycling programs, “Based on overwhelming demand from residents, local governments and the glass industry, PRC is announcing a new alternative for glass recycling,” according to PRC Co-Executive Director Justin Stockdale. “This exciting new program will ensure that glass is not trash, even if it can no longer be put out for curbside recycling in numerous municipalities due to recent changes in waste haulers’ contracts.”
The first of numerous pop-up recycling collection events will take place:
Saturday, March 9, 2019
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Village Square Mall parking lot, Bethel Park.
Residents can drop off all colors of glass bottles, jars and jugs at no cost. PRC staff and volunteers will be on-site to assist recyclers.
“PRC is excited to introduce this new opportunity for glass recycling in the Pittsburgh area that will not only provide a solution for residents but that keeps the supply of recycled glass flowing to the mills that consume it as a raw material,” said Stockdale
The pop-up glass recycling network is sponsored by CAP Glass, Owens Illinois and Straub Brewery in conjunction with several local municipalities impacted by recent changes in curbside recycling regulations, including the Township of Upper St. Clair.
“We commend the municipal governments who helped PRC develop this network for their strong commitment to recycling and leadership,” said Stockdale. “PRC hopes to expand this service by partnering with additional municipalities who also recognize that glass remains a valuable commodity with vibrant demand in the regional/national recycled materials marketplace.”

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded the Township of Upper St. Clair with the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the Township’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). The Township also earned the GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the 2018 budget document.
On Monday night during the Board of Commissioners meeting, Commissioner Daniel R. Paoly formally recognized the Finance Department for both achievements.
The CAFR award is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management. The CAFR is judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
The budget award reflects the Township's commitment to meeting the highest principles of government budgeting. The budget is judged on its proficiency in serving as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device.
Upper St. Clair was one of only four municipalities in Pennsylvania to receive both awards last year.
