Managing glass for recycling has become increasingly difficult and costly. Glass in the commingle is now considered a contaminant by most recycling processors. There are some options: you can take glass bottles and jars to our recycling depot at 8001 Table Rock Road. We also have glass recycling depots located at Sherm’s Thunderbird in Medford, Food4Less in Medford, and Ray’s in Central Point, Phoenix and Jacksonville. Click here for a flyer.
Also, most glass beverage containers can be returned for deposit under the Oregon Bottle Bill at the Medford Bottle Drop center. To see what is accepted go to www.obrc.com.
