Empty out those wine bottles, Villagers: The Corinth Square Ripple Glass bin’s Odyssean quest is coming to an end — and just in time for the holiday season!
Ripple Glass announced yesterday that the wayward bin that was banished from its happy home beside the abandoned Tippin’s building when extensive renovations began at the center early this year will return to Corinth Square next Tuesday, Nov. 27.
Property owner LANE4 initially moved the bin behind the Hattie’s Coffee building at the northwest corner of the center before noise complaints and confusion with a cardboard recycling dumpster forced it across 83rd Street, where it did a short stint behind the Mission Road Antique Mall…before residents of the nearby apartment complex tired of the sound of shattering glass as well. Since June, it’s resided on the Prairie Village municipal grounds.
But ever so soon, the bin will be lugged back very near to its original — and very popular — location, right by the Somerset Drive entrance nearest to Mission Road.
“Prior to construction, the Ripple Glass bin at Corinth was the top collection point in the metropolitan area,” said Ripple Glass executive director Stacia Stelk. “I am confident that 2013 will see it regain that ranking.”
Let’s give thanks for this excellent news by creating some recyclable bottles!
