Glass Bottle Recycling at Downtown Drop-off Site


The City of Olathe has capitalized on an opportunity to again recycle some types of glass and is now accepting clear, green and brown glass bottles at the City's downtown recycling drop-off site on the corner of Poplar and Kansas Avenue. The container has three bins labeled by color and residents are asked to sort the bottles accordingly. If the bottles are not sorted, the City will not be able to recycle them. Other glass (windows, mirrors, ceramic glass, etc.) cannot be accepted. Since changing the curbside recycling program, the City has continued to explore opportunities for glass recycling.
