This weekend, the City of Corpus Christi Solid Waste Operations and the Clean City Committee are offering glass recycling. The event will take place Saturday, September 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Whitecap Wastewater treatment Plant located at 13409 Whitecap Boulevard. Crews will set up in the 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. Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, eyewear, hats and sunscreen.
