Glass Recycling to Resume in Fairfax County Next Week

The COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on glass recycling in Fairfax County, including the Town of Herndon.

Now, officials are resuming the glass recycling service, also known as the Purple Can Club, according to the county’s website.

The collection of glass dropped off at purple, glass-only containers resumes on Monday, May 11.  

Containers are currently being reset at locations throughout the county. The Reston bin is located at the Reston South Park and Ride (2431 Reston Parkway). Another bin is located at Great Falls Library.

Residents can also bring glass containers at the I-66 transfer station and the I-95 landfill complex. Free mulch service also resumed on Saturday, May 2.

The county suspended glass recycling at the purple bins in mid-March.
