While it’s best to ensure glass isn’t broken when including in your recycling, broken glass bottles and jars can be recycled. If you have broken glass, please be mindful of how it is set out in your glass bin, or dropped off at the depot, to ensure the safety of workers who collect or handle your recyclables.

Be aware that in BC, container glass is always put into its own bin – either at the curb or at the depot. Broken glass contaminates other recycling materials.
