The Jan. 12, 1972 issue of the Review featured the Glass Mobile as its lead story, with the headline: Ecology – Everybody’s Business. The handsome mobile unit, clearly labeled with the presorted glass colors — green, brown and clear — was sponsored by the Forest Park Environmental Committee. The glass collection would take place in the St. Bernardine’s parking lot. Newspapers were also collected — tied in bundles — and deposited in “the Village Garage — the back of Peaslee’s Hardware.”
