Pasadena businesses begin recycling glass.

The city of Pasadena, Calif., in cooperation with the California Department of Conservation, the Glass Packaging Institute and recycler Allan Co., has implemented an 18-month glass recycling pilot program, according to a report in the Pasadena Star-News (Pasadena, Calif.).

About 12 restaurants and bars have joined the program since it began in April, according to the report.

The Allan Co., based in Baldwin Park, Calif., provides containers for the businesses to store used glass products, which it collects regularly.

A $284,000 grant from the California Department of Conservation funds the program.
