Bridging the Gap operates several service centers. Items that can be taken can be found here, and locations here.
We have verified with Bridging the Gap that paperback books can be recycled as is. Hardback books can be recycled if the covers are taken off first.

RecycleSpot.org helps users find recycling centers based on the material that needs recycling, or by location.

Ripple Glass offers a glass recycling throughout the Metro area. Check the website for locations. Glass does not need to be sorted or have labels removed prior to recycling.
