Curbside recycling of glass in Sioux City to end in November

(AP) -

SIOUX CITY - By the end of November, Sioux City residents will no longer be able to recycle glass as part of the city's curbside recycling program.
The Sioux City Journal reports  that the change comes after Van's Sanitation, the Le Mars company that processes Sioux City's recyclables, announced its decision to phase glass out of its facility, citing falling commodity prices and safety concerns.
The city will instead begin collecting glass recycling at a handful of drop-off locations around the city in early December.
Environmental services analyst Melissa Campbell says if the drop-off program works well, the city can add more drop-off bins later. The city's Environmental Advisory Board is also considering options to track usage to find out which locations are doing better than others.
