Why can't we recycle glass in our curbside program?
Glass is not accepted in curbside or commercial co-mingled recycling. If glass were to break in the curbside container, during transit, or during the sorting process, the shards from glass mix in with the recyclable paper. These shards of glass cause problems for paper recyclers and can make the mixed paper or cardboard unrecyclable.Clear glass is not currently accepted at Yakima County Landfills for recycling.
