    Excellent article by Russ Zimmer about a massive shortfall of recycled glass availability in Ohio... Owens-Corning, Johns-Mansville and other manufacturers are having to truck in glass from PA and MI.

    Despite the massive manufacturing demand and shortfall, the statistic cited by Ohio EPA in the article is that "90 percent of container glass ends up in landfills."
