Glass recycling drop-off containers are serviced 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.
Separating glass from other recyclable materials is the most effective way to recycle it. In 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.
To notify us of an overflowing glass recycling container at any of our seven drop-off locations throughout the county, please contact the Customer Care team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Place the container location and “Overflowing Glass Recycling Drop-off Container” in the email subject line.
