JAMESTOWN – Glass is no longer on the list of mandatory recyclables in the City of Jamestown.

City lawmakers approved an ordinance on Monday night revising code to remove glass from the list and change the time Board of Public Utilities Solid Waste customers can put out trash bins from 6 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Residents will now have to bring glass to the county transfer station in Falconer if they would like to recycle it.

Councilwoman At-Large Tamu Graham-Reinhardt was the only dissenting member, saying she hopes residents will still take time to properly dispose of the material.

Back in November the BPU laid the groundwork for the change, citing a customer demand for more plastic and cardboard recycling.

The resolution also saves the BPU money by not collecting the material.

  1. I hope residents will take their glass to the transfer station. Generally I have very few glass containers and I should have no problem keeping them until I have enough to warrant a drive to Falconer.
