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.


glass recycling jars_0.jpgSeparating 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.
