What does this new program cost the County?

This program has no additional cost implications to the County. The bins were provided by O-I Glass, and the County received a competitive grant from the DEQ for promotional materials (buckets, information cards, promotional materials, etc.). The County delivers the purple bins to O-I in Toano, but it is closer than the MRF in Chesapeake, where the co-mingled material is transported. Since glass is the heaviest material, removing it from the co-mingled material saves the County in transportation costs.
