Curbside preparation: Clean glass jars and bottles, with lids removed and labels intact, are fully accepted in a separate CRD blue box or similar sized container. Please place the lids in the blue box that contains the non-glass containers.
Broken glass is not accepted in the curbside recycling program. You may wrap broken glass in newspaper or something similar, so that no one gets cut handling it, and place it inside your garbage bag, inside your garbage can. Alternately you may take broken glass to a recycling facility that takes pane glass. Go to Glass (pane) for more details.
NOTE: Keep sheet, pane, and household glassware out of your blue box, as this contaminates and can ruin an entire load.
Glass can also be recycled at your local depot. We encourage you to return your refundable bottles to a bottle depot near you for a return of your deposit.
Please see our list of facilities below, be aware that some may charge a fee. You can also visit Recycle BC Depots for a list of facilities that will take glass bottles and jars for free.
