Ask SSC Q: Can broken/shattered glass be recycled?

2013-11-26-

Glass Bottles

A: Dear Sarah,

While glass is recyclable, for safety reasons, we prefer that broken or shattered glass be bagged or placed inside an empty carton (milk/juice) or box and discarded as garbage. Cracked or chipped glass bottles and jars are accepted for recycling.

Glass Bottle & Jar Prep Reminders

All colors accepted. Labels & caps OK. Remove caps. Place loose in bin or Toter®.
Rinse containers clean. Bottles must be removed from 6-pak and 1/2 case boxes, etc. and placed loose in bin or Toter®. More info on preparing recyclables is here.

NO Window/plate glass, drinking glasses/mugs, pitchers, windshields, light bulbs, mirrors, fluorescent tubes, ceramics, pottery, Pyrex® or other baking dishware, or insulation.

For additional questions, please contact us or call 360-734-3490.
