How to recycle glass food jars and bottles

Recycle empty and clean glass food jars and bottles:

  • In your blue cart — unbroken and broken glass jars can be placed loose in your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

This includes:

  • Pickle jars
  • Salsa jars
  • Jam jars
  • Pasta sauce jars
  • Olive oil bottles
  • Cooking oil (vegetable, grapeseed etc.) and olive oil bottles
  • Apple sauce jars

Special instructions

  • Remove the metal lids and recycle as a separate item in your blue cart.
  • Stickers/labels are ok to leave on the glass jar.

If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, glass bottles should be accepted in your building's recycling program. If they are not accepted, please contact 311 to report this issue.
