One of Arlington’s glass recycling bins is being moved to improve access to those in the far northern reaches of the county.
The drop-off bin in the Cherrydale library parking lot, which has been there since last fall, is being moved to the Madison Community Center (3829 N. Stafford Street) later this week.
“The new glass recycling drop-off bin will be available starting at 9 a.m. on Friday,” the county said. “The location of this site, along with the County’s four other glass drop-off sites, allows for glass drop-off centers to be available within 2.25 miles of all County residents. Convenience is an important component in making recycling drop-off centers successful.”
The county’s other purple glass drop-off bins are located at:
- Quincy Park (N. Quincy Street and Washington Blvd)
- Shirlington Trades Center (2700 S. Taylor Street)
- Aurora Hills Community Center (735 18th Street S.)
- Lee Community Center (5722 Lee Highway)
“In just a year, our community has recycled over 2 million pounds of glass and we hope to continue the success of the program together,” the county said.
Much of the glass collected by the bins is sent to Fairfax County to be crushed and used as construction material, but some has been sent to a processing plant and turned into new glass products.
