Glass Recycling a Smashing Success

More than 4 million pounds.  That’s how much clean glass has been collected in purple bins located in Northern Virginia and taken to the region’s only glass-crushing machine in Fairfax County.

A truly smashing success that has shattered expectations after a new policy went into effect last year that the county and our private recycling haulers will no longer accept glass bottles and jars at curbside.
