Recycling & Disposal Information:
Glass bottles are recyclable in home recycling programs and drop-off recycling centers. If you live in an apartment or multi-family building, ask your building manager about recycling. If recycling isn't offered in your building, call your city recycling coordinator for help.
Rinse before recycling and remove lids. You don’t need to remove labels.
- Food jars (jam, pickle, pasta sauce, baby food, vegetable and/or olive oil)
- Beverage bottles (soda, beer and wine bottles)
- Mason jars
- Drinking glasses, mugs, dishes, cookware, pottery, and vases
- Window and mirror glass
- Empty containers that held hazardous products like nail polish, hobby stains or paints
If reuse and recycling isn’t an option, place non-recyclable glass items in the garbage. As local markets for recycling develop, some recycling programs are accepting more types of glass. Check with your recycling service provider to see which items they accept.
