Library a Partner in New County Glass Recycling Program

Five DeKalb library branches are drop-off sites for DeKalb County’s new glass recycling program. Beginning Monday, July 17, 2017, the County wants you to drop-off your glass at one of 16 locations, rather than mix it with other materials you put out for curbside pick-up. Officials at the Sanitation Department say this will help ensure the recycled glass is the high quality manufacturers require to re-use it.

The five library branches where you will find glass recycling containers are Dunwoody, Flat Shoals, Hairston Crossing, Salem-Panola and Stonecrest. Library Director Alison Weissinger says the Library is pleased to take part in a program that can help reduce our use of raw materials and conserve natural resources.

Other drop-off sites include parks and recreation centers and a fire station. For the complete list of sites and more information about the program, click here.
