Ask The Editor: Why doesn’t Glendale recycle glass?

Posted 6/25/21

Question: Just curious why Glendale is the only major city in Arizona much less the entire U.S., that does not recycle glass. I questioned this several years ago and was told “we were looking into it but recycling glass makes costs too high.” Why can other cities make it work? I take my glass to a friend's house in Phoenix and Peoria for recycling. And at what point do we look at the environmental costs of just throwing everything in the landfill?
