Glass no longer accepted in single stream recycling program

GLASS NO LONGER ACCEPTED BY WASTE MANAGEMENT IN THE CITY OF CANTON’S SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING PROGRAM


Glass bottles, jars and containers will no longer be accepted in the City of Canton’s single stream recycling program. Glass was recently removed from single stream recycling due to the decreased value to recycle the material. Area glass processors are no longer able to accept glass because mixed glass from single stream recycling collections and processing operations have been rejected by secondary processors and as a result has no marketable value. The challenges with mixed glass are not anticipated to change in the near future.

As an option, residents may continue to recycle glass, separated by color, at the following Cherokee County locations:
