I recently attended a program at my library about my city's recycling program.  The presenter explained that the city does not take any material for which there is not a profitable market.  He also said that he thinks this is the most viable recycling model.  If your city will not take the pyrex, perhaps this could be an opportunity to explore a viable recycling business for it.

You should have a local rep. If not, let me know and I can reach out to them.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Recycling pyrex glass

Does anyone know of a recycler of pyrex glass, preferably in the Midwest?  Our normal recycler does not take pyrex glassware and no-one else seems to that I can find.  I'm referring to clean, but may be broken, high temp glassware; so there is no concern with chemical contaminants.


Appreciate any assistance with this.
