 Drop-off Recycling Sites

The City is participating with the Ripple Glass recycling effort in the Kansas City area. Ripple Glass is a new business that uses recycled glass to make fiberglass for insulation. The glass no longer needs to be separated by color. Glass recycling is now available at all three drop-off sites. The City can only accept glass bottles at the site. No windows, mirrors or ceramic glass can be accepted. Please rinse the bottles.
