Recycle

Instructions

Make sure it's empty. If the cork is natural material (i.e., looks like cork), compost it. Put plastic corks in the grey landfill cart.

Alternatives

Opt for wine with a natural cork instead of plastic. You can also subscribe with local vineyards and wineries from which you can buy wine in bulk and take back the bottles once you're done with them.

Facts

Properly separated glass can be continuously recycled, as there is little to no 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.
