Why can’t I put glass in my recycling tote?

When glass (bottles, jars, refundable beverage containers) is placed in curbside totes, it breaks into unrecoverable pieces which contaminates the recyclables and can create potential health and safety issues at the sorting facility. Please take glass to a Recycling Centre to be properly handled and recycled.
