From Lake Placid News:

LAKE PLACID — The town of North Elba’s Recycling and Transfer Station will stop accepting glass starting March 1.

The transfer station will still accept redeemable glass bottles, but locals turning in non-redeemable glass items will now have to pay to discard them. The town charges 9 cents per pound of garbage. Revenue generated from the redeemable bottles and cans go to local nonprofit organizations, according to the town’s website.

Town Councilor Richard Cummings suggested the town move forward with the change at the council’s meeting Tuesday, Feb. 11.

“There’s no market for glass,” he said.

The transfer station is open from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. every day except Thursday, Sunday and holidays.
