Glass Drop-Off Recycling

The Dubuque Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Agency (DMASWA) is sponsoring two drop-off stations to provide access to Dubuque County residents for glass recycling. Glass should not go into your recycling bin or tipper cart.  Purple containers are available at:

  • The DMASWA Landfill Facility at 101 Airborne Rd. (formerly 14501 HWY 20 West, now accessed by a frontage road.)
  • The City of Dubuque Municipal Services Center at 925 Kerper Ct. 
  • Hy-Vee in Asbury Plaza (off the NW Arterial)

The following types of glass may be dropped off for recycling in the purple containers:

  • Rinsed glass food and beverage containers (all colors, labels may stay on)
  • Drinking vessels (pint, wine, mason jars)
  • Candle jars (leftover wax is okay)
  • Cosmetic bottles/jars
