As of May 2020, the City is no longer accepting glass for recycling at the depots.  

Recycle right
Put the right items in the bin.  Trash and wrong items are considered contamination.  Contaminated recycling becomes garbage.  If you bring your recycling to the depot in plastic bags, the bags should be emptied into the bin and the bag should be thrown away in the trash bin at the depot.

Recyclable material accepted:

aluminum cans
Aluminum beverage cans only.  Food cans, foil, and foil pans are not accepted in the bin.  Do not place bags of cans in the bins-- empty the contents of the bag in the bin and place the bag in the trash.
