How to recycle

Glass Bottles or Jars

In recycling – rinse first

  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Lids 3-inches or larger
  • Lids smaller than 3-inches can be recycled only if attached to the bottle or jar.

Did you know?

Jars coated with oily food like peanut butter can be wiped first with a paper towel (put the paper towel in the food and yard waste). Very small amounts of peanut butter or food residue are okay.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
