Glass bottles, glass jars and wine glasses may all be made from glass, but that doesn't mean that they are all recyclable. While glass jars and bottles that once held food items like pasta sauce, ketchup and applesauce are recyclable in some curbside recycling, glass used for bakeware and for table settings is not. The reason is this type of glass has a different melting point than other glass, which means tossing a chipped wine glass into your recycling bin actually can contaminate a load of recyclables. If you have glassware to get rid of, donate and don't recycle.
