Our local trash pick up stopped separately picking up glass to be recycled and it's now okay to put glass in the trash. For those like me who want to recycle the glass, there are several places we can take the glass to have it recycled. I did that today and when I looked into the recycling bin, I saw that it's almost entirely wine bottles. The glass is ground up into small particles and used in the paving material used for highways. I just hope they grind those particles into small enough pieces that they don't flatten my car's tires!
