We want to offer something that is not currently being done in our area - glass recycling and eco-friendly sand. This small step keeps glass out of the landfill and allows it to have a new purpose as sand.

Welcome to 2023! The first glass drop-off event in January brought in a record amount of glass - 1835lbs. See you soon! Thank you for being patient as we grow.

Coming soon! We are working on our online marketplace for our eco-friendly sand. Five particle sizes available in multiple colors and package sizes. It can be used for everything from crafts to construction projects! Multiple types of sandbags will be available by February 1st!
Thank you, Lexington! Our containers at the Lexington Public Works Recycle Center are bringing more than 600lbs of glass each week. Please help us keep the area clean and do not put trash in. For larger amounts of glass, please contact us to schedule a drop-off time at our Buena Vista location or bring it to a glass drop-off event.
In 2022, we collected more than 23,900 pounds of glass from residents of Buena Vista, Lexington and Rockbridge County! Residents from Alleghany, Amherst, Bedford, Botetourt, Roanoke and Rockingham counties participated in our glass drop-off events. We sent out 11,000 LBS of sand! This is simply amazing for our first year!

Some people have mentioned that GPS does not show true directions to our location. As you turn onto West 21st street, please go across the railroad tracks, through the gate to the new Virginia Innovation Collective building. Continue in front of the building and around to the corner of the building to find EarthMagic Recycling!
EarthMagic Recycling started as a dream in 2018. Various events caused delays, but now the dream is a reality. The sky is the limit! We are excited to see what comes next!
We have such strong support from so many friends, businesses, groups, family and members of the community. Thank you so much!
The 8th Annual Gauntlet Business Program and Competition was held in Spring 2022. The Awards Ceremony was held in Vinton, VA. EarthMagic Recycling LLC placed in the top 10 of the Platinum Category.

EarthMagic Recycling is registered as a vendor in the Virginia electronic procurement (eVA) system and is currently working on the process for becoming SWaM and Micro certified. We are also exploring federal contracting certification.
We accept clean food and beverage glass. Please remove the tops and rinse the items to help control any odors. Labels can be removed - we really appreciate it - or left on. It is very important for the glass to be clean and dry to protect our equipment and to produce clean sand.
We cannot accept broken glass due to safety risks.
We love our customers! Please send us suggestions!
