While residents can no longer recycle glass curbside, they do have the option to recycle their glass at local drop-off sites.

Earlier this month, Greensboro, N.C., stopped accepting glass in curbside recycling bins. Residents now have the option to bring their glass recyclables to local drop-off sites.

With this change, the city hopes to recycle more glass properly and cut down on contamination of materials.

If you want to recycle your glass in Greensboro, you'll have to go to one of four places set up specifically to receive it.

Kathleen Clay Library, at 1420 Price Park Drive, is one of four spots people in Greensboro are recycling glass jars or bottles.

It’s joined by Fire Station 19, at 6900 Downwind Road; McGirt-Horton Library, at 2501 Phillips Ave.; and Medford Service Center, at 401 Patton Ave.
