City Glass Recycling Event Scheduled

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi Solid Waste Operations and Clean Corpus Christi will offer glass recycling, Saturday, May 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Calallen Wal-Mart located at 3829 U.S. Highway 77. Participants can drop off glass to crews who will be set up in the store’s parking lot.

Glass is one of the few materials that can be recycled indefinitely without losing strength, purity or quality. During the recycling event, all colors of clean glass and any type of glass will be accepted from participating citizens. Citizens are asked to keep the colors of their glass separated as that is how processors accept it. 

Volunteer opportunities and community service hours are available for the event. Interested parties can register at www.cbvc.org. Participants should wear closed toe shoes, hats and sunscreen.
