Glass Packaging Institute Responds to Report on the Use of Post-Consumer Container Glass in the Northeast

“Lastly, the states in the region should consider a regional compact to assist in the siting and support for new multimodal regional glass processing facilities that can handle MRF glass, to deal with the region’s non-bottle bill glass.

“Consumers strongly support glass recycling and want to see more glass packaging options on store shelves. As a leading stakeholder, GPI looks forward to continuing its work in the Northeast and across North America to improve glass recycling programs, which are critical to a circular economy.”
