Christie Lane Industries has launched a new pilot program to provide glass to a Cleveland recycler.
Christie Lane, a school and workshop operated by the Huron County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, recycles glass and uses it to manufacture and sell its own line of products called CliTile.
"Right now, there is a shortage of recycled glass on the market. We're going to try this for a month to see if it's profitable. If so, we will include glass in our current recycling program and charge a nominal fee to businesses for pick up," said John Schwartz, director of the adult programs and facilities at HCMRDD.
