The DeKalb County Sanitation Division is launching a new glass recycling drop-off program. An official launch event will be held Thursday, July 13, at 10 a.m., at the Sanitation Division administration building, 3720 Leroy Scott Drive, Decatur, Ga.
All recycling collected at the drop-off locations will be used for manufacturing new glass containers and fiberglass. Before dropping off glass containers, residents should rinse all food and liquids. Only food and beverage glass containers that are blue, green, clear or brown glass will be accepted. The drop-off locations will not accept pane glass, light bulbs, ceramic glass or non-beverage and non-food containers.
