Glass Recycling

Help Keep Glass Waste Out of the Landfill

Learn About Georgia College's Innovative Glass Recycling Program

Georgia College began its glass recycling program in 2021 to increase the diversity of our waste reduction portfolio. Since glass waste is not an acceptable item under the single-stream recycling program, GC purchased its own glass recycling technology that gives us the capability to crush glass bottles and turn them into a sand-like byproduct, known as recycled crushed glass (RCG).
