The City of Lawrenceville is now offering a brand new option for recycling. A drop-off Glass Recycling Station is now available at Lawrenceville Public Works located at 435 W. Pike Street in Lawrenceville.
Drop off is available from 7 am – 7 pm, Sunday – Saturday.
“The City of Lawrenceville is pleased to offer our community a convenient option for glass recycling right here in Downtown Lawrenceville,” said Mayor David Still. “The City Council and I received the message that recycling is extremely important to our citizens. It saves energy, conserves natural resources, prevents pollution, and reduces the amount of waste sent to our landfills.”
Community members dropping off glass are asked to separate it into bins marked for clear and colored glass. Accepted items include: All colors of food and beverage bottles, as well as jars. All lids should be removed and discarded, and glass should also be rinsed to remove food and debris.
The following items are not accepted at the Public Works Glass Recycling Station: Broken glass, car windshields, light bulbs, mirrors, televisions, and window panes.
The City of Lawrenceville is working with Latham Home Sanitation to transfer the glass to a recycling center offsite.
Those wishing to utilize the Glass Recycling Station at Public Works do not have to be City of Lawrenceville residents.
“As the county seat, Downtown Lawrenceville is a daily destination for thousands who work in the area,” said Barry Mock, Assistant City Manager. “We welcome all who are interested in glass recycling to utilize this service. We saw the need in our community and our Public Works staff worked out the logistics to provide a solution.”
