Glass Bottles


Updated on July 18, 2019



Empty bottles before placing in blue recycling cart. Try to keep the caps and lids attached to the container. Metal caps and lids can also be recycled.


Try to reuse the bottle as long as is possible and hygienic before disposal.


Glass can be continuously recycled, as there is little loss of quality or purity in the process. Glass dishes, light bulbs, windows, or glass bakeware melt at a different temperature than bottles, and must be separated into landfill.
