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. Glass does not break down naturally -even if you waited one million years. It can be broken into smaller pieces of course, but not broke down.

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.

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!
We have such strong support from so many friends, businesses, groups, family and members of the community. Thank you so much! We could not do this without you.
EarthMagic Recycling started as a dream in 2018. Together we think the sky is the limit! We are excited to see what comes next!
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. One of the highest awards!! Such support from The Advancement Foundation, localities, other businesses, mentors and sponsors - it was a huge opportunity for us!
EarthMagic Recycling is registered as a vendor in the Virginia electronic procurement (eVA) system.
We accept clean food and beverage glass. Please remove the tops and rinse the items to help control any odors. The 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 for your projects from crafts to construction.
We cannot use certain items - examples are bottles with stuff like limes or snuff in them, drinking glasses, empty candle containers, animal prescription bottles, plate window glass, etc. Thank you for understanding.
We love our customers! Please send us suggestions!
