How do I recycle large, odd or difficult to handle wasteFlat glass, like window glass or mirrors, is NOT part of our curbside recycle program.  It can, however, be placed out for pickup with your regular garbage (residential customers only).   You may want to consider taping or wrapping the glass prior to pickup.  For items larger than 4ft by 4ft or for broken glass, please contact our office so that we can let the driver know about glass in the load, as it can pose a safety risk.  We also suggest containing broken glass in a box.
