The City of Corpus Christi Solid Waste Operations and the Clean City Committee are offering glass recycling for the benefit of the community. The event will take place Saturday, May 10, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Calallen Wal-Mart, located at 3829 U.S. Highway 77.

Crews will be set up in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

Glass is one of the few materials that can be recycled indefinitely without losing strength, purity or quality. During the recycling event, all colors of clean glass and any type of glass will be accepted from participating citizens. Citizens are asked to keep the colors of their glass separated as that is how processors accept it.

Volunteer opportunities and community service hours are available for the event. Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, hats and sunscreen. For more information contact Russel Stowers at (361) 826-1655.
