America Recycles Day

Wednesday November 15th 2023

Join in our community celebration for America Recycles DayⓇ (ARD), an annual holiday and nationwide initiative shining light on the local recycling movement aimed to educate, motivate, and inspire current and would-be recyclers.

Residential Pickup!

We are finally ready to offer LOCAL GLASS PICK-UP to our neighbors in Alexandria, LA!
Everyone loves the idea of recycling glass. Not everyone has the time or ability to drop it off. Some prefer to have it picked up on a monthly basis… Sound like you?
✔️ Do you live in the Alexandria city limits?
✔️ Are you interested in glass pick-up (directly from your home)?
✔️ Would you be willing to donate a setup fee + small monthly amount to avoid making the weekend trip to the glass recycling center?
If you checked yes, yes, YES…

1 Million Years… that’s a long time!

It takes 1 million years for glass to completely decompose. The good news is that a lot of glass products are 100% recyclable.

Start recycling in Cenla

The average recycling facility throws away 60-90% of what they collect. Our rate is less than 2%.

How You Can Get Involved

We have 3 main ways you can get involved: volunteer, advocate, and donate.


We know you’re excited to help! We will have many volunteer opportunities in the coming months. Please let us know if you’re interested!


One of the best ways you can help Glass Act is by spreading the word! Tell your friends, family, and neighbors. Heck, you can even tell the car next to you when you’re stuck in MacArthur traffic!


Donations are the backbone of our organization. We couldn’t do what we do if it wasn’t for your generosity. So please, help us reduce waste by donating to the cause!
