Special Announcement About Glass Recycling

Effective immediately, the Town's recycling contractor NO LONGER ACCEPTS GLASS because it breaks during transport contaminating other materials and causing machinery damage.  In addition, the worldwide market for recycled glass has dropped precipitously, making it uneconomical for many communities to continue accepting glass in single stream recycling programs. 

However, if you do not want your glass waste to end up in the incinerator, the Montgomery County Transfer Station on Rockville Pike (16101 Frederick Rd., Gaithersburg) accepts CLEAN GLASS (clear, green and brown bottles and jars only).  Or you may be able to take it to an office, store, place of worship, or another place where glass still is recycled.  The Town is looking for a better, long-term solution to this issue, and we will keep you posted.
