Like most municipalities, Baltimore County has a recycling ordinance. Residents are asked to place recyclable materials, including discarded glass bottles and jars, in recycling bins, which are then collected at the curbside.
There’s only one thing that separates the Baltimore County glass recycling program from similar programs elsewhere: for the past seven years, the glass that was collected hasn’t been, you know, actually recycled. It has been simply thrown away.
