Eco-friendly glass collection program

Glass removal services in the Piedmont community

We pick up your glass on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month.

Did you know that glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without losing its quality or purity? Fairfax County has collected 4 million pounds of glass to date –that's 4 million pounds that did not end up in the landfill!

Unfortunately, glass is no longer accepted as part of the regular curbside recycling program. So, if you place glass in your regular recycling bin it will contaminate the whole load. But there is no reason to worry, The Junkluggers of Gainesville, VA can help with our eco-friendly glass recycling program.

How our glass recycling program works

Once we pick up your glass, it is brought to Fairfax County’s processing plant at the I-95 landfill complex. Machinery recovers any metal, such as bottle caps, crushes the glass, removes labels and other debris, and then screens the product into various grades of sand and gravel.

The plant is capable of crushing 20 tons of glass per hour, pulverizing glass bottles and jars into sand and gravel that can be used for paving, construction, and landscaping. The crushed glass can also be used in different drainage and stormwater control applications.

The benefits of our glass collection program:

  • Keeps glass out of landfills
  • Recycled glass is used in construction & landscaping projects
  • Over a ton of natural resources are saved for every ton of glass that is recycled
  • For every six tons of recycled glass used in manufacturing, one ton of carbon dioxide is reduced
  • Recycled glass can be substituted for up to 95% of raw materials
