Nonprofit Brings Glass Recycling Program Uptown

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Public Library is teaming up with Glassroots – the nonprofit arm of Glass Half Full – to bring a free glass recycling program Uptown every month. 

Starting Nov. 17, residents are welcome to bring their used glass to Milton H. Latter Memorial Library (5120 St. Charles Avenue) from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on the third Friday of the month.

Glass Half Full offers free drop-off services to residents, but its New Orleans East facility may be difficult for some to access. That’s why the New Orleans Public Library teamed up with Glass Half Full’s nonprofit arm, Glassroots, earlier this year to offer two satellite drop-off locations. Over the past seven months, the library said it has helped Glassroots divert 5,150 pounds of glass from landfills and into Glass Half Full’s green initiative, including those working to combat coastal erosion.
