Glass Containers

Clear and coloured, glass bottles and jars can be returned for recycling at no cost, to the Summerland Sanitary Landfill. 

Containers MUST be CLEAN and DRY 

  • Containers that have not been cleaned contaminate the recycling bin and can result in the entire recycling bin ending up in the landfill as garbage.

  • Refundable jars and bottles are NOT accepted at the Summerland Sanitary Landfill. Please return these to a local Bottle Depot for a refund.

  • Lids for bottles and jars are accepted in your blue curbside collection bin.

  • PLEASE NOTE: Glass jars/containers do NOT go in your curbside collection cart. This causes contamination and may end up resulting in entire truckloads of recycling being buried as garbage.
