Glass Bottles & Jars

Glass is now accepted at all of our Recycling Drop-off Sites and in all curbside recycling programs. 
Check with your Curbside Recycling Program

Not all glass can be recycled. Think food and beverage containers ONLY (pickle jars, beer bottles, etc.)!
  • Make sure the glass containers are empty. 
  • NO ceramics or heat-resistant glass such as dishware, ovenware (Pyrex), candle jars and decorative items
  • NO drinking glasses or mason jars
  • NO mirrors or window pane glass
  • NO crystal
  • NO light bulbs
  • NO cathode-ray tubes (CRTs) found in some televisions and computer monitors

New glass objects are easier to make from recycled bottles than from raw materials. When you recycle glass, it’s reused to make new bottles and fiberglass that are used every day.
Broken glass can be cleaned up, contained in a paper box or bag and placed in the regular trash.
