What kind of glass can be recycled in Jefferson City?
Glass does not have to be sorted and labels do not have to be removed. Please place lids back on the containers. These will not contaminate the waste stream.
Pyrex, ceramic, window glass, toilets, and TV's cannot be accepted. These items contaminate the waste stream and cannot be recycled. If these items are still useable, please take them to Habitat for Humanity for reuse.
Where can glass be recycled?
Glass can be recycled at any of the 4 locations below
1228 East McCarty Street- Save A Lot Parking Lot
2284 Hyde Park Road
2730 West Main Street
Where does the glass go?
Glass to be recycled is consolidated at a city facility and then sent via tractor trailer to Ripple Glass in Kansas City, MO. Upon arriving at Ripple, glass is cleaned, sorted and crushed into cullet. The cleaned cullet is then made into insulation or new glass bottles.
Communities that participate in glass recycling with Ripple Glass receive an insulation donation at the end of each year to be used as they wish. River City Habitat for Humanity has been the recipient of these donations for 3 years.
