Broken Glass Put in Recycling Cart/Bin Recycle ONLY broken bottles and jars. Broken porcelain, ceramics, Pyrex, glassware, window glass and mirror glass go in the garbage cart. Place small broken glass items in a small plastic bag or wrap them in newspaper. Put large pieces of broken glass inside two layers of plastic bags, and then label the bags as broken glass. Do Not Recycle Broken Drink Glasses & Pyrex Broken stemware, other drink glasses, porcelain, and Pyrex cannot be recycled. These types of glass are made from mixed materials that will contaminate the glass recycling process for bottles and jars. Seal Off Small Items Place small broken glass items in a small plastic bag or wrap them in newspaper. Dispose of those items in the trash.
