Glass Recycling and Improved Drive Thru Recycling Coming to Tybee


We're upcycling our game on Tybee Island!


Glass recycling is coming to Tybee Island AND we have a new and improved Drive Thru Recycling facility! Join us on facebook for a virtual ribbon cutting on March 21 1 p.m., and then start using the recycling facility March 22. This new glass recycling service is free to local residents and businesses.

Thanks to a partnership with The Upcycling Company, our discarded glass will be made into new products like kitchen countertops. Learn more about glass recycling from The Upcycling Company.
