French Quarter Management District Launches 3 FQ Glass Recycling Locations

3 Weekly Drop-off Locations for French Quarter Residents

NEW ORLEANS — As of June 3, 2024, residents of the French Quarter and visitors can now drop off glass and other recyclable materials at the Louisiana Jazz Museum on Esplanade Avenue every Tuesday, at Cabrini Park on Dauphine Street every Thursday and at The Historic New Orleans Collection on Toulouse Street every Sunday as part of a new program designed to improve the quality of life for all who live, work or visit the French Quarter.

The weekly drop-offs should weigh no more than 100 lbs. and can be taken to the following addresses:

• New Orleans Jazz Museum at 400 Esplanade Ave. on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

• Cabrini Park at 1219 Dauphine Street on Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

• The Historic New Orleans Collection at 616 Toulouse Street on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

“The recycling program is something our residents have wanted for a while,” said Karley
Frankic, Executive Director of French Quarter Management District. “Thanks to our partners at Glass Half Full, this important quality of life French Quarter service is now a reality,” she said.

Businesses seeking to recycle glass can contract directly with Glass Half Full. Glass Half Full recycles glass “waste” into sand and gravel for disaster relief, coastal restoration, and eco-construction. Each French Quarter site will accept glass, aluminum, paper/cardboard, and plastics #1 and #2. A Glass Half Full staff member will be on-site during the duration of each drop-off to help attendees sort their recyclables and answer questions.

This announcement comes as part of the Keep the Quarter Clean campaign, a local Keep Louisiana Beautiful affiliate, aiming to maintain a higher level of cleanliness and improved sanitation for all who love the French Quarter. For more information visit Glass Half Full and Keep the Quarter Clean.
