   It has been one smashing year since the official launch of the

   Convenience Centers

   To date , 145 , 370 pounds or almost 66 tons of glass have been collected . Approximately 39 tons of sand , 12 tons of soda ash , 11 tons of limestone and five tons of feldspar have ......been conserved . For every six tons of recycled container glass used , a ton of carbon dioxide , a greenhouse gas , is reduced , totaling 11 tons of curbed emissions to date .
   The Glass - only Recycling program is possible through a partnership with O - I Glass , a container glass company that has been operating in James City County since 1980 . One year ago , O - I purchased special purple bins to collect glass that is taken to the O - I Glass plant in Toano and used to produce new glass bottles and containers within 30 days .
   As a token of their appreciation for citizen efforts , O - I Glass makes a quarterly charitable donation to the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula . They distribute the funds to various charities in James City County for their mission , Pathways Out of Poverty . A total of $4 , 115 . 75 has been donated to the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula since the program’s inception .
   Special thanks to the 
   Clean County Commissionfor using grant funds from the Department of Environmental Quality to purchase a mobile steel container to be used at special events . Grant funds were also used to purchase 720 purple buckets that are being distributed to residents to facilitate household glass collection .
