Sticky food or liquid residue can contaminate other recyclables. Did You Know? Glass Is Infinitely Recyclable Glass is one of the most recyclable items on the planet. It can be broken down and upcycled infinitely without losing strength, purity, or quality. The glass containers used to hold food and beverages, in particular, are usually 100% recyclable. Recovered glass is recycled into other glass containers, fiberglass insulation, and decorative glass such as terrazzo tiles and landscaping (xeriscaping).
