And yet more than 28 billion glass bottles and jars are landfilled each year in the US — the equivalent of filling up two Empire State Buildings, every three weeks.
A potent greenhouse gas and climate change contributor. They pose serious risks to public health and the environment. And we’re fast running out of room in them. The clock is ticking.
We can even upcycle it into materials that remediate pollution from the landfills themselves! It’s a perfectly circular solution.
We recycle household glass like beverage bottles and food jars in all colors. No need to rinse, just place household glass items in the bin. We cannot recycle materials like mirror, lightbulbs and glass dishes or drinking glasses.
