Rules for recycling glass products is published by each city's Department of Sanitation and Waste Management. The city provides information on whether glass is accepted intermingled with other materials or if glass materials must be sorted in a particular way.
Glass materials are recycled repeatedly without ever losing purity or clarity. Individuals are advised to remove debris and wash containers before placing them into recycle bins. This helps to prevent contamination, particularly for glass that is mixed with other recyclables.
Glass materials are usually collected from residential curbs along with household trash. City collection centers or drop-off locations are typically also available for recycling larger quantities of glass.
