Glass Recycling is now available in Prairie Village.
Ripple Glass has a purple recycling bin in Corinth Square between Commerce and Arby's and by Missouri Bank and Trust in the Prairie Village Shopping Center. There are also bins near the CiCi's Pizza in Roeland Park and at Border Star Montessori in Brookside. Occasionally the bin may not be there. Don't worry, they have only removed it for a day or two to empty it.
Almost all of the glass collected by Ripple Glass is recycled locally in Kansas City and then another Kansas City business, Owens Corning, uses the crushed glass to make fiberglass insulation.
