How do I prepare glass for disposal?

  • Package items safely in a puncture-resistant, non-breakable container (e.g. plastic tub, plastic pail, laundry detergent container)
  • Or wrap in two layers of paper and place in a tied bag.
  • Label as 'sharps' with a permanent marker and place in your black cart.
