Bend Garbage/Republic Services and Cascade Disposal/Waste Management are temporarily suspending the collection of curbside glass within the city of Bend until at least May 15. Glass is collected by hand and may pose health and safety risks to collection service employees who need to observe physical distancing and other COVID-19 safety protocols.
For the time being, individuals should do one of the following for glass disposal:
· Keep recyclable glass until recycling resumes.
· Take recyclable glass to one of these drop off sites:
o Cascade Disposal, 1300 SE Wilson Ave., Bend, Mon. – Fri., 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.
o Deschutes Recycling at Knott Landfill, 61050 SE 27th St., Bend, Mon. – Sat., 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
· Place glass in the trash cart.
NOTE: Please do not place glass in recycling carts. This causes issues with sorting and processing recycling. Customers will be notified when curbside glass collection resumes.
