- Glass Bottles & Jars
Rinse and recycle in the curbside program.
- Broken Glass
Wrap up broken glass and place in household trash. Place broken windows in a cardboard box and label it to alert trash workers. Windows are often made with leaded glass, which is not accepted for curbside recycling.
- Drinking Glasses & Glassware
Donate to Goodwill, Salvation Army or MA Coalition for the Homeless. Give away or sell on Craig's List. Bring small quantities to the Recycling Center during open hours only. Glassware often is leaded glass and is not accepted for curbside recycling.
Donate to OneSight at a participating retailer including Cambridgeside Galleria (Lenscrafters, Sears Optical or Sunglass Hut).
- Light Bulbs
Place incandescent bulbs in household trash. Recycle fluorescent bulbs.
