Glass Recycling Returns to Los Alamos Next Saturday

Have you picked up your new yellow bin yet? There are still some left at the Eco Station (FREE) and it will be really handy for you to have when glass recycling returns in just one week (Sept. 29). You’ll see the bright yellow dumpsters at Sullivan Field and the Overlook Convenience Stations next week – and that’s where you’ll take your yellow bin. Remember: no glass in the recycling BLUE roll carts and no YELLOW Bins placed at the curb – take it to the yellow dumpsters or directly to the Eco Station – thanks for your help in keeping our Recycle roll carts glass-free! Find out what we plan to do with all that glass that’s coming in to the Eco-Station, when you read this News Story:
