Never Recycle With Glass Bottles
Auto glass is not made from the same material as glass jars or bottles. It’s actually made from layers of glass and plastic that are fused together. Never recycle automotive glass with glass bottles because they are handled differently.
Cover Sharp Edges
Cover the sharp edges of the windshield after you have taken it out of the car. Tape the edges and wrap the entire piece of glass in a blanket. Covering the sharp edges will make transporting it to the landfill safer and easier for you and any future handlers.
Alternative Ways to Recycle
Return to Windshield Replacement Programs
A number of companies, including Safelite and JN Phillips, have launched windshield replacement programs. These programs reduce how much waste is generated by auto glass.
