How to Recycle Glass Bottles & Jars
Glass is one of the few materials that can be recycled infinitely without losing strength, purity or quality. Glass bottles and jars are collected in most U.S. communities at the curb. You can also recycle glass bottles and jars at drop-off collection sites and through container deposit programs in 10 states.
