Glass Cleaning Process Application

The Glass Cleaning Process Application applies to processors (PR) purchasing commingled glass from certified dropoff (DP) or collection (CP) programs including a “waste reduction facility,” or certified community service programs (SP), or registered curbside programs (CS).

Also, the purchased glass has residual or other contamination levels greater than 10% by weight and are eligible for refund value.

Processors are eligible to receive program payments on this material, if the glass can be cleaned to 10 percent or less contamination by weight and they have an approved Glass Cleaning Process. The Glass Cleaning Process application is how a processor requests and receives approval for an alternative method of preparing shipping reports (DR6) for payment, in this situation.
