We collect and melt waste glass in our furnace, and we look to the community to help in our efforts! Much of the glass we send to our local recycle centers cannot be used by large companies, primarily because glass is a complicated material to recycle. We have a great process that not only uses waste, but teaches about recycling and our environment, and the impact for our future generations. Our recycle process is also the foundation of our apprentice program and teaching entrepreneurial business and life skills.

In order to maintain clean and compatible glass in our furnace, we ask that all glass be:

  • clean (light rinse is ok)
  • intact (not broken in any way)
  • labels removed (whenever possible, light glue residue is ok)
  • no metal or plastic rings 

Types of glass we can accept: wine, liquor, beer, jar, etc. ANY COLOR is OK.


We have a bin by our back door if you want to drop off glass outside of our regular business hours of 11-3 Tuesday through Saturday. Thank you for supporting our sustainability efforts!
