The glass (recycling industry) is not half full these days.  Upstate South Carolina citizens will no longer be able to recycle household glass because there are no remaining materials recovery facilities (known as MRFs in the waste management industry) to accept the glass.  Upstate Forever has prepared a detailed summary of why glass recycling has been discontinued.

If you are an enthusiastic recycler, do not despair.  Other waste categories, such as cartons and tetra-packs, are now widely accepted for recycling by MRFs, and City of Greenville residents will soon get larger recycling bins.
