Gladys’ Rules for Recycling Glass


Check the rules for what recyclables are accepted in your local program.

Rinse and empty before recycling.

Clear food glass is usually accepted.

Check the rules to see if colored food glass or any non-food clear glass is accepted.

Lids should be removed to be recycled in their respective streams – plastic, metal.

Glass used for cooking purposes – like Pyrex – is not accepted.

Lightbulbs are not accepted in curbside recycling programs, but some types of lightbulbs can be recycled at local participating retail stores.

Raccoon - Gladys Glass

What Gladys Glass is listening to

Life isn’t always about recycling. It’s about life – hanging out with your raccoon friends, napping in attic spaces, rummaging through dumpsters, engaging in nocturnal capers and, of course, obsessing about recycling. But no matter how you live your life, you need cool music to go with it.
