Glass Bottles

Instructions

Make sure it's empty. Metal caps and lids can also be recycled but broken glass goes in the landfill bin.

Alternatives

Try to reuse the bottle as long as possible before disposal.

Facts

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.
