SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Because it’s now cheaper to make new glass than recycle old glass Spartanburg city and county are ending their glass recycling programs

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports (https://bit.ly/1L0tJOu ) that beginning on March 1, residents of the city and county will no longer be able to recycle glass in curbside bins or take glass to recycling centers.

The count’s solid waste manager Kevin Farmer says that because the price for recycled glass has dropped, there’s no place for the county to sell it.

It’s not just Spartanburg, he said, but a nationwide issue.

The county has accepted glass for recycling for almost four years.
