Glass Recycling

We recycle all types of pre-consumer/post-consumer glass. This includes: clear and colored glass, jars and jugs, beer, liquor and wine bottles.

Glass Recycling Facts and Benefits:

  • Each month the U.S. throws out enough glass bottles and jars to fill a giant skyscraper.

  • A typical restaurant will dispose of roughly 15-200 lbs of glass per week (beer, liquor and wine). All of this glass is recyclable and taking up dumpster and landfill space.

  • A glass bottle that is sent to a landfill can take up to a million years to break down. By contrast, it takes as little as 30 days for a recycled glass bottle to leave a recycling bin then appear on a store shelf as a new glass container.

  • Glass containers are 100% recyclable, which means they can be recycled repeatedly, with no loss of purity or quality in the glass.

  • Recovered glass from glass recycling is the primary ingredient in ALL new glass containers.
