Don't Trash Glass
Restaurant & Bar Glass Bottle Collection Program
RESTAURANT & BAR GLASS COLLECTION PROGRAM
A Partnership Between Glass Packaging Institute, GlassKing Recycling and Glass Recycling Foundation.
Don't Trash Glass (DTG) is a program partnership between Glass Packaging Institute (GPI) and GlassKing Recycling, initiated in Phoenix, Arizona to service bar and restaurant glass pickup in order to divert glass away from landfills.
The program's first sponsorship came from Crescent Crown Distributing of Mesa to support glass bottle collection to be recycled into new bottles, fiberglass, and more.
Since its launch, DTG has expanded to the Chicago Area, working with additional sponsors like Smirnoff and support from the Glass Recycling Foundation to improve the recycling and glass manufacturing supply chain.
Don't Trash Glass has also received support from Lakeshore Recycling System, Strategic Materials Inc. and O-I Glass.
