Glass

Most curbside and drop-off recycling programs in York County accept rinsed clear and colored bottles and jars with lids removed.  To verify if your municipality’s recycling program accepts these items, contact them directly. 

Other glass items, such as drinking glasses, glass and ceramic food and beverage dishes, decorative glass and ceramic items, aquariums, mirrors and window glass are not recyclable in York County.  If these items are in good condition they can usually be donated.  An internet search such as “donate (mirrors, dishes, windows, etc.) York PA” will show organizations that accept these items for donation.  Glass and ceramic items can also be disposed of in the regular garbage.
