How to dispose of glass vases
Glass items in good condition
Donate or drop off items to participating charities. See Alberta's Recycling Hotline.
Old and broken glass items
Put unusable glass housewares in your black cart as garbage.
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.
Why can't I recycle household glass items?
The glass used for these items is different than food jars and is not recyclable.
