Handling Information

Drinking Glasses, Vases, Ceramic Mugs, Dishes, Pyrex, Etc.

Glass from drinking glasses, pyrex containers, microwave oven trays, incandescent light bulbs, etc. is tempered differently than store-bought glass bottles, jugs and jars, and is NOT accepted for recycling curbside (or at the ecopark). These materials, along with ceramics (mugs, cups, crockpot liners, bowls, etc.), must be disposed of in the regular trash.

NOTE: Greenovation may accept some ceramics and glass dishes, plates, drinking glasses, etc. for reuse (see its link below for details on acceptability). Area florists may accept good condition glass vases back for reuse (contact first).
