Can I put a broken jar into the recycling bin?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

No. Broken glass is hazardous to the workers who collect and sort your recyclables. To dispose of broken glass, seal it in a box or wrap it in several sheets of newspaper and place it in your garbage.
