The City of Alexandria has partnered with Fairfax, Arlington, and Prince William counties to go green — or in this case, purple.

Ten purple glass recovery bins are now Northern Virginia’s glass collection sites. As opposed to recycling used glass curbside, the receptacles ensure that glass is recycled and reused. When glass is recycled the traditional way, it can be mixed with paper and plastic, making it harder to repurpose.

Bins are located at both refuse facilities: the Landfill off Dumfries Road, and the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility. Residents can take their glass there directly. Please remove glass from trash bags before disposal.
