Recycle Right

Recycling Drop-Off Center

The City of Coconut Creek is proud to announce the addition of Glass to our South Recycling Drop-Off Center! Glass will only be collected at the Drop-Off Center located behind the Police Department, 4800 West Copans Road. Please review the list of acceptable items and non-acceptable items to ensure we are keeping our materials free from contamination. For more information on glass recycling, please see the FAQs below. 


The City has worked tirelessly to find ways to bring glass recycling to the City of Coconut Creek, and after much research we have located a company that will accept this material. Strategic Materials Inc. regularly supplies recycled glass to manufacturers of containers, fiberglass, highway beads, glass abrasives, decorative glass, glass fillers, and other specialty glass.

The glass collected at the South Drop-Off will be transported to Strategic Materials, located in Sarasota. The glass will be processed and supplied to manufacturers.

Strategic Materials processes the glass in Sarasota and then provides the byproduct to manufacturers of glass containers, fiberglass, highway bed materials, glass abrasives, fillers, specialty glass and plastics.

Other types of glass are unsuitable for recycling due to coatings, added materials, and different melting temperatures or chemical coatings. Glasses that will not be accepted are mirrors, auto glass, picture frames, tabletops, dishware, ceramic, porcelain, kitchenware, light bulbs, crystal, tempered glass, doors, windows, and sliding doors.

From containers to kitchen tiles, from countertops to wall insulation—glass is an amazingly versatile material. And recycled glass adds impressive benefits to manufacturing. Glass manufacturers are also using recycled glass to improve their sustainability and lower manufacturing costs.

All City residents and businesses may utilize the Coconut Creek Recycle Right Drop-Off Center. All residents utilizing the Center must present proof of residency in Coconut Creek such as a Driver’s License, I.D. Card, or current utility bill. All businesses must present a copy of their current business tax receipt.

Corrugated cardboard boxes (flattened), rinsed plastic bottles and jugs labeled #1 and #2, rinsed aluminum and steel cans, and glass bottles/jars (Glass collection only available at South Drop-Off location)
