Glass collection for recycling has begun again after relocating the Recycling Center to 4330 1st Avenue South, near Avondale. After Argos (formerly LaFarge NA) stopped accepting glass at their Calera cement manufacturing facility over three years ago, our only option to continue recycling glass was to attempt to transport it to markets in Georgia and Tennessee due to space and equipment limitations. There were expensive logistics of collecting, storing, transferring, and transporting glass out of state. Unfortunately, this was not sustainable and we stopped the program. We are glad to resume this valuable service for the Metro Birmingham area!
