Clear Glass

Most types of clear glass are recyclable, such as bottles, jars or containers. These can be recycled, but other types of glass such as coloured glass, window panes, or ceramics cannot be recycled.

What's the best option for managing my clear glass?


Glass is not the easiest item to recycle, so try and reduce your consumption! Buy food items in bulk and try cooking recipes that can replace foods that you would normally buy in glass containers.


Many glass jars and containers can be reused to store food or other items.


Glass is not accepted in the curbside recycling program. However, clear glass is accepted at the recycling stations, just be sure to clean them and take off any metal lids.

Dispose of any coloured or dirty glass in your black cart.
