Montgomery County Reminds Residents and Businesses to Continue Recycling Glass Bottles and Jars

Montgomery County has recycled glass bottles and jars for decades. All County residents of single-family homes, multifamily properties (apartments and condominiums) and all businesses, organizations and government facilities are required to recycle glass.

Recently, there have been news reports regarding other jurisdictions in the Washington metropolitan area and nationwide that are reconsidering the recycling of glass due to changes in the financial aspect of glass recycling. However, Montgomery County is continuing to recycle glass as part of its recycling program as it feels that the environmental importance is more significant than the adjustments that must be made to meet changing financial conditions of glass recycling.
