The City of El Paso is introducing its glass recycling program for residents. The City will use a glass pulverizer to recycle glass containers for use in garden landscaping and any other home beautification projects.
The event will include a demonstration of how the glass pulverizer operates and more information about the glass recycling pilot project.
The glass recycling program will help to reduce glass litter in our community, will reduce waste headed into the landfill, and provides a valuable resource with a second life.
El Pasoans who would like to recycle their dry, empty glass bottles and jars are encouraged to take them to nearest Citizen Collection Station, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
A residential El Paso Water Utility bill is not necessary to access the Citizen Collection Station for this new program.
The crushed glass will be made available to residents at the Pendale Citizen Collection Station, located at 1034 Pendale. It will be free of charge. There is no limit on the amount of glass residents can take home. The Pendale Citizen Collection Station is open from 8 am – 4 pm. Tuesday through Saturday.
