Residents May Now Recycle Glass at the Lawton Center

Because Town residents may no longer put glass in their single-stream recycling carts, the Town Council has approved a new system to recycle glass. A central collection point for glass has been set up at the Lawton Center. Effective today, residents can drop off glass into several green recycling bins, marked “Glass Bottles and Jars Only,” in the loading area behind the Lawton Center. The loading area is accessible from 44th Street near the intersection of Elm Street. Residents are reminded that only clean glass bottles and jars may be placed in these carts. The following items are not acceptable: jar lids, sheet glass, glass windows, mirrors, Pyrex, light bulbs, crystal, glass dishes, and ceramics. We hope that residents will take advantage of this opportunity to recycle glass and remind you to still use your green recycling cart to dispose of all recyclable materials except glass. The Town’s Climate and Environment Committee will continue to research best recycling practices and will recommend to the Town Council any additional improvements to the Town’s recycling service.
