Greenstar Allentown

Greenstar's Allentown facility is a single stream recycling system and a regional container glass sorting facility. The single stream system allows plastic, metals, paper and glass to be conveniently mixed together for easy curbside collection with the materials effectively sorted at the facility.

Our Allentown facility has a unique glass sorting facility. It sorts glass, mixed together at collection, back out into the three primary colors (flint, amber and green) to sell back to the bottle industry. It contains a quality check optical sorter for non glass such as ceramic, Pyrex and other glass that is not accepted. It also houses a glass bead manufacturing plant that consumes window glass to make very tiny glass beads, which are then put into road paint to give it a reflective quality.

Recycling in Pennsylvania

Greenstar has two material recovery facilities in Pennsylvania and processes material for the City of Pittsburgh, City of Allentown, and municipalities and businesses throughout Pennsylvania.
