Yes, glass bottles and jars will be accepted in curbside single stream recycling programs, and at community single stream recycling drop-off locations.

With Single Stream Recycling, there is no need to separate glass bottles and jars by shape, size or color.

But remember, no glass other than food and beverage bottles and jars are accepted in community single stream recycling curbside and drop-off programs.

One important thing to keep in mind as you recycle glass is that even small amounts of some materials mixed in can contaminate entire loads. Window glass, Pyrex, drinking glasses and ceramic items such as plates, mugs and figurines are to be placed in your trash.
