Eco360 recommends glass be put in the garbage bag. Why?

Glass jars, bottles and broken glass all belong in your garbage bag. Glass is not recyclable in our region as there is no market for it. If you can, reuse your glass products or donate them for reuse by someone else. You can also bring all your glass beverage containers to a redemption centre for your deposit refund and many of the beverage containers received in that system are sanitized and reused.
