Glass (unbroken windows)

Glass (unbroken windows)
Have you undertaken a renovation or demolition project and ended up with a stash of unbroken windows? If your window has some aesthetic appeal, an antiques or consignment store may be willing to take it off your hands. Habitat for Humanity accepts window donations; check their website or call ahead to make sure they are accept what you have.

How do I go green?

Refrain from replacing older windows. Keep the cold out and heat in by properly weather stripping around the window and installing heavy curtains and/or shutters.

A timber framed multi-pane or sash and case glass window makes an interesting design element when mounted on the wall or on an exterior garden wall.

  • The Environmental Story

    Like glass containers, glass windows will take nearly an eternity to biodegrade in a landfill. Glass windows or window glass are not accepted through curbside recycling, but there are still some green options for the Capital Region resident.
