What can you do with old ceramics?
Thereof, where can I throw away ceramics?
Unlike glass and similar materials, curbside recycling programs don't typically pick up ceramics. However, this doesn't mean they have to wind up in a landfill. Take your used or broken ceramics to a commercial recycling center or donate them to a thrift store to ensure they're being offloaded responsibly.
Similarly, are ceramic mugs recyclable? According to Waste Management, the presence of ceramics like coffee mugs and plates in a batch of your typical, curbside-recyclable glass will weaken the recycled product, which is why ceramics aren't usually accepted. This is unfortunate, because ceramic is technically recyclable.
Just so, how do you dispose of ceramic cups?
If you can, wrap up the pieces in a cloth and break them down further with a hammer so they won't hurt anyone. Then, dispose of them as broken glass.
What can I do with unwanted glassware?
Place the trash bag in a cardboard box. Some companies may also request that you dispose of broken glass in a solid container as well. If this is the case with your waste management company, then you should also place the glass-filled garbage bags in a cardboard box, seal it, and label it broken glass.
