Fort Hunt Elementary Student Adopts Glass Recycling As A Business

Fort Hunt Elementary student Emily Holland has started a unique business around mid-April. Holland said, “I noticed that a lot of glass had been going into landfills and trash instead of recycling, and it takes glass a really long time to disintegrate. So I thought, I could pick up people’s glass for a really low price. And then I would drop it off at the glass recycling center every Saturday or so.”
Emily Holland, of Alexandria, fills the trailer she pulls with her bicycle with recycling from neighbors
According to, "Holland said her neighbors thought it was a good idea and her mom helped her put up an article on the social networking site Nextdoor. Her customers leave their glass at the end of the driveway or by the curb. Holland then goes around on her bike, with a trailer and bin attached, and collects the glass. The money is certainly nice, but Holland is also working to help the environment. She recently took part in a creek cleanup." As per, "Holland wants people to learn from her story, as well, because unrecycled glass “just floats around in rivers, or it just gets stuck at the side of the road. And people will, like, just leave it there. And it just sits and sits and some animals might try to eat it, or a car might run over it. And then it just sits there forever.” She also hopes to inspire other kids."
