Q. What do I do about glass

A. Unfortunately, we CAN NOT recycle glass in our on-campus recycling bins. Glass can be taken to a drop-off location in parking lot P62B, in the southwest corner, near the disc golf course. There are also other drop-off locations around the City of Flagstaff. To find a location visit the City of Flagstaff drop-off locations page. Learn more about what happens to glass and Glass Collection Guidelines.
