The dynamic Blue Knob Farmer’s market team are starting our own glass recycling system. We are purchasing bulk glass jars & bottles for locally made products so we can offer a refund on returns. We will sterilize & re-use (with new lids as required by law). Unlike other recycling systems, the energy intensive process of re-melting the glass won’t be neccesary & hopefully will encourage locals to buy local products- only our glass range will receive a refund. (Of course, we encourage those at home to re-use any glass jars the supermarket has provided) Don’t forget, zone one co-op is also an agent for Alpacka Packaging & can order bo-degradable packaging for local businesses.
