Want us to make it easier for you? We can pick up your glass from your doorstep with our e-bike!

Drop off your glass

You can drop off your glass with us at the Bok Building loading dock in between 8th and 9th on Mifflin Street. Our drop off hours are generally Tuesdays and Thursdays 11-2 by appointment and every other Saturday 12-2 open hours. Our scheduler or Instagram has the most up to date calendar.

Please bring your glass in a cardboard box or cloth bag that you don’t need back. Better yet, become a member of our crate exchange program and we’ll swap your crate of glass with a fresh one every time!

Volunteer with BU!

As a small non-profit with big goals, every set of hands helps!

If you volunteer with us, you get a behind-the-scenes view into BU. Our volunteers will help us take glass from the community, clean bottles for our partners, or move glass when we need some extra strength! You can state your preferred activity on the form and we’ll do our best to match you to it.

“I felt very welcomed and learned so much!”

Anonymous Helper!

“One of the things that was mentioned several times as we reflected on our experience was the opportunity to genuinely be a part of closing the loop with glass reuse locally, and how we felt that our short time with the BU team still felt like we were able to contribute to the BU mission in a tangible way.”


“Everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcome.”
