Dear Ben,

My Pyrex baking dish just broke! Can I recycle that?

Pan You Help Me

Dear Kitchen Calamity –

Unfortunately, we cannot recycle heat tempered glass. To make new products from recycled glass, it’s melted. Heat-resistant glass doesn’t melt at the same temperature and causes problems for our end users.

We can happily recycle broken glasses, glass plates (not ceramic) and bowls.

Thanks for asking!
– Ben
