The Sanitation Division services all glass recycling drop-off containers on an as-needed basis. Containers are transported to a glass recycling processor in College Park for servicing, and returned to their original location within 24 hours.
The DeKalb County Sanitation Division is committed to environmental sustainability, with the glass recycling program being a critical component of the County’s environmental stewardship efforts. Separating glass from other recyclable materials is the most effective way to recycle it. Glass recycling drop-off locations are becoming increasingly popular and effective in yielding high-quality glass. Effective, July 17, 2017, DeKalb County discontinued the placement of glass in curbside single-stream recycling, and provides county-operated glass recycling drop-off containers in strategic locations throughout each commission district. This approach maintains the integrity of recycled glass, and makes this recyclable item a much more marketable and valuable resource. We encourage you to join our quest to make recycled glass a much more sustainable and valuable recyclable item.
