Recycling Glass Bottles is Just as Easy as Poppin’ Them!

Glass is all around us. It’s in our cars, our homes and our workplaces. There is no question that it is part of our daily lives in its many forms. Fortunately, unlike so many of the items we consume and use frequently, glass is 100% recyclable and often reusable.


Nonetheless, glass products make up a lot of industrial waste in our country and throughout the world. The United States is just now starting to catch up to places like Germany and England with the rates of our glass recycling, and with your help we can get even better!alt
Fortunately, here in San Bernardino County, recycling our glass bottles and containers is easy to do! Here’s how your household can properly recycle glass products:
*Glass can be placed in your curbside recycling bin
*Please empty and remove all lids
*Not all glass is created equal: keep mirrors, light bulbs, dishes, windows or ceramics out of your recycling bin. If these items are in good condition, donate them to your local thrift store. Burned out light bulbs should be taken to your nearest Household Hazardous Waste facility.

Pretty simple right? Well, that’s our goal anyway, and we hope as a result you will do your part to recycle glass bottles and containers. Let us know the latest glass product that made it into your recycling bin in the comment section below. To learn more about recycling, visit our recycling page.
