Our longtime glass recycling partner, Argos (formerly LaFarge NA), is no longer able to accept glass from the Downtown Birmingham Recycling Center. Due to chemistry changes in their raw materials, glass cannot be used as an aggregate for their cement manufacturing for the near future. As a result, we are no longer able to accept glass for recycling at the Recycling Center until further notice.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: This whole setup was created out of a citizen making some connections and we hope that might happen again this time! Options could be: 1) another local industrial facility that could use glass in their process; 2) transportation company willing to haul glass to Atlanta to the closest recycler; 3) someone in Birmingham area with warehouse or paved surface and loading equipment that can help transfer from roll-off bins to trailers for transport.
