Jeff Hajek (seen above in front of a local recycling center) is our newest employee, recently having started with the BCDCOG as a Regional Planner. Among his projects that he is working on a grant called the, “BCD Tri-County Glass Recovery Grant”.

The purpose of the BCD Glass Recovery Project is to advance awareness of glass donation and glass recycling as a way of directing waste from the landfills. Large employers/institutions and food and beverage establishments will be targeted because they are among the largest glass waste generators and can make a high waste diversion impact setting an example for other businesses. As with any pilot program the BCD Glass Recycling Project will target high volume business/institutions.

This grant is a great step towards reducing the waste within our landfills and as more information becomes available we will share it here and on our twitter and facebook pages.
