Throw it out
Glass housewares are not accepted in blue carts or community recycling depots. The glass used for these types of household items is manufactured differently from the glass used in items like food jars
Unusable or broken glass items should be disposed of safely by putting the pieces into a puncture-resistant, non-breakable, sealed container (i.e. plastic tub, plastic bleach bottle, milk container or pop bottle) or by wrapping it in two layers of paper and bagging them. Label as "sharps" with a permanent marker and place in your black cart as garbage.
