Glass bottles, jars and containers will no longer be accepted in the City of Canton’s single stream recycling program. Glass was recently removed from single stream recycling due to the decreased value to recycle the material. Area glass processors are no longer able to accept glass because mixed glass from single stream recycling collections and processing operations have been rejected by secondary processors and as a result has no marketable value.
