    My community doesn’t separate glass colors

    hmmm...our recycling program allows us to put all the glass in together. It does make sense to separate though.

    I looked at the sheet from our city sanitation and there wasn't anything about separating glass by colors, so I am assuming that they are separated at the facility.

    I’m pretty sure my recycler takes everything and they separate it there themselfs. I know I can put different colored wine bottles in and they get taken.

    this I didn't know. Now I know why they didn't take the green bottles.
