About

Buy returnable (reusable) glass bottles whenever possible. Glass bottles that can t be reused may be placed in your blue box. Clear is the most valuable. Lids can go with metal. Glass of other kinds -- light bulbs, mirrors, ceramics, drinking glasses, window glass, crystal and Pyrex -- should never be put in your Blue Box or depot container. To dispose of these forms of glass properly, please carefully place pieces inside a cardboard box, tape the box closed, plainly mark the box glass" and put out with your garbage. It s a good idea to buy Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs instead of Incandescent Bulbs. The CF Bulbs last 7 times as long as the incandescent, and save a huge amount of energy. Remember, Reuse is better than Recycling in terms of energy use. Some Reuse Options: Some local make-your-own wine and beer stores will accept many bottles for re-use. Some bulk/Health food stores accept drop offs of a limited number of jars to be reused (be sure to call ahead). More information about Glass and Glass Recycling is available from the Glass Packaging Institute-a glass industry association. http://www.gpi.org/recycling/
