Glass Recycling to Resume in Fairfax County Next Week

The COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on glass recycling in Fairfax County. Now, officials are resuming the glass recycling service, also known as the Purple Can Club.

The collection of glass dropped off at purple, glass-only containers resumes on Monday, May 11, according to the county’s website.

The county suspended glass recycling at the purple bins in mid-March, and containers are currently being reset at locations throughout the county.

The Tysons area has several bins.

The Vienna bin is located at 431 Mill Street NE. Another bin is located at the Dolley Madison Library (1244 Oak Ridge Ave) in McLean. A third is at the Falls Church Recycling Center (217 Gordon Road).

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.
