The easiest way to recycle glass is to make sure it gets into the right trash bin. San Antonio has one of the largest curbside recycling pickups in Texas, with pickup once a week. Here are a few links to information about local recycling efforts:
Texas Recycle Day - November 15th
San Antonio Texas Neighborhood Recycle
Bexar County Recycling efforts

-But really why stop there. One of the wonderful things about glass is that it melts and through this process can be reshaped into an entirely new thing, a new life. Here are a few wine bottles I’m using to create artistic or functional glass pieces. In the interest of full disclosure, this is my first attempt at using recycled glass. So to not have any issues related coefficient of expansion (COE), I have chosen to use material from one bottle for each piece and not to mix any of the glass. I am also taking scrupulous notes so I can later reflect and learn from this experience.
After cleaning the bottles, I broke them and am using the material to create individual six inch round blanks from which to later work.
