We will be accepting glass since it is no longer taken in your recycling bin at the curb. You will be requested to show your dumpster card or a utility bill to gain access to the dumpster. You must live in the city limits of Duluth to use this facility. Please ensure that all glass food jars are properly cleaned before you bring them to recycle. If you are only recycling glass on your visit, your dumpster card will not be punched. You must bring your glass items during regular dumpster hours when the Attendant is on duty.
Veteran Markers Moving:
It has become increasingly dangerous for our employees to place markers on SR120 and Pleasant Hill Road. Because of this danger, all markers on SR 120 and Pleasant Hill Road have been moved to George Rogers Avenue. Please be understanding that the City places safety for its employees first.
All markers from Governors Landing east bound on SR120 have been moved to 3159 Buford Hwy. All markers on Pleasant Hill westbound from WP Jones Park to McClure Bridge Road have been moved to George Rogers Avenue. This change is due to safety issues for our crew.
If you can not locate your marker, check the alphabetical listing from our Veteran Marker page.
