    I reuse my glass jars /bottles for glasses and only buy the jelly that comes in a glass mug. I have kids and the glasses you by at the store get expensive. I love the Atlas spaghetti sauce jars for drinking cups. And I keep the lids to use for traveling or as a shaker jar. I have used old face cream jars and decorate them as gift boxes. Recycle ReUse...

    We aren't allowed to recycle with curbside containers. Have to keep them and find a recycle center that will take them. Being a senior, I find that pretty difficult. I end up tossing them in the trash bin. Sigh.

    This doesnt seem to take onto account the energy to move the glass from a recycling center to a remelt facility. Glass also contaminates other streams when it breaks and makes manual sorting dangerous. I throw it away as we have heaps of sand and glass does not pose any environmental threat. Ymmv.

    Ours have to go to a landfill unless we find a way to reuse them.

    Most expensive component in glass manufacturing is ENERGY. Material components cheap. Running kilns at thousands of degrees of temperature is not. Recycling glass reduces energy use. Recycled glass (AKA 'cullet') melts at a lower temperature
