Why is the glass being taken to O-I Glass?

This glass-only recycling program is possible due to investment made by O-I Glass. As a company, O-I Glass wants to increase the amount of recycled glass in their products. As a token of their appreciation for citizen efforts, O-I Glass will be making a charitable donation to the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula, which will invest the donation in our community.
