Getting glass recycled in Volusia County


Does your city in Volusia County no longer recycle glass? Some cities have stopped picking up glass in curbside recycling programs, due to the lower demand for recycled glass. Others may live in apartments where recycling is not offered. You still have options to have your glass (and other items) recycled and reused, depending on the type of material it is. If you live in Ormond Beach, Port Orange, Orange City, or another city in Volusia County and you want to have your glass recycled you can drop it off at the county's recycling drop-off locations. 

Volusia County offers numerous recycling drop-off locations. It's easy to drop your items off at these places, and by doing so they will get recycled or reused, depending on the materials. Clear glass bottles and jars, green glass bottles and jars, and amber/brown glass bottles and jars can all be dropped off at the recycling centers to be reused. This means if you live in an area that is no longer picking them up through curbside recycling that you can save them up in a box in the garage and then once every couple of weeks or once a month you can simply drop them off at one of the recycling drop off containers.

Due to their being no market for buying glass to recycle (it's cheaper to make it new than to recycle it), even this glass that you drop off is not being recycled. It is being reused, for making roads and alternate daily cover in the landfill. So while it is being used for something, it's not being recycled into new glass. 

Also, please keep in mind that you should not put electronics out to the curb to be put in the landfill. These items, including televisions, computers, printers, etc., can all be dropped off at the Tomoka Landfill or the West Volusia Transfer Station for recycling. If you have decent items that can still be used by others, such as furniture, consider taking a photo of them and listing them for free on Volusia County Curb Alert. This will help keep good items out of the landfill and will help others who  could use those items.
