How do you properly dispose of glass?
When it comes to recycling glass, you may be asking yourself, how exactly do you dispose of it correctly? As glass has the potential to be extremely sharp and dangerous, it can feel risky to just throw it in a bin and let it shatter. Disposing of old mirrors and windows can be a pain, which is why it’s a good idea to get a disposal service team, such as ourselves, to get rid of any larger pieces of old glass for you.
Smaller pieces of glass can typically be recycled in your locally provided recycling bins, as long as it hasn’t suffered too much damage. Things such as light bulbs and soda bottles can simply be placed in the bin, but where broken glass is concerned, you should take extra precautions. Wrap up old glassware in duct tape to prevent it from harming others, and try to remove old pieces from your curb. If, however, you want someone to take your larger goods, then we have the disposal team you need.
Due to our years of expertise, we have incredible links with local glass recycling centers so you can be assured that any glass containers our workers handle will be correctly disposed of. We specialize in taking larger pieces of glass as opposed to smaller trash such as light bulbs, but if you have any additional requests or questions then contact us today!
Can glass be recycled?
Glassware is easily recycled, as long as it hasn’t been shattered beyond repair. The best way of disposing of glass is in fact to recycle it as it is a fairly straightforward process. From your bathroom mirror to any old glass bottles in your garbage bags, most household items that are made from glass can be recycled.
At Weebble Junk Removal & Hauling we will ensure that any glass we dispose of will meet up to the recycling requirements and will be correctly handled. Broken glass can be fairly hard to dispose of correctly as most recycling programs refuse to take it, so please try to make sure any glassware our workers need to pick up is fully intact.

Ideally, you want to ensure that any glass you are disposing of is placed into a recycling bin as opposed to an all-purpose garbage bin. Glass is easily recycled and can be used for a multitude of different products so ensuring it is recycled is a great way to do your part for the environment.
Glass can be extremely hazardous to sanitation workers if it has shattered, so try to avoid shattering any glass before you put it in your bin alongside other recyclables. If the glass has shattered, it can be hard to recycle correctly, so it may be best to place shattered glass in a garbage bag as opposed to recycling it. The shattered glass should be wrapped up in newspaper and put in a cardboard box to prevent it from being a threat to any garbage men. As long as you make sure are safe and take precautions to dispose of broken glass, it is more than ok to put glass in the garbage.
After glass has been thrown away it tends to be taken to your local glass recycling center. Once it arrives at the center it is then washed and sorted out depending on its color. The next step is crushing the glass and then heating it rapidly until it reaches its melting point. Once glass has been melted it can be reformed and is used in a host of different glass-based products. A lot of glass you will find in things such as beer bottle glass and glass jars will have been previously recycled by people. Try to do your part by recycling any glass household items!
