Recycling depots across the Yukon are being asked to stop accepting non-beverage glass for recycling as of November 30, 2019.
As of November 30th, glass jars, bottles, containers and other non-refundable glass like pickle jars will no longer be accepted at recycling facilities in Whitehorse. As a result, all recycling depots outside of Whitehorse are being asked to stop accepting this glass as well. Refundable glass beverage containers (like beer, juice and liquor bottles) will remain in the Beverage Container Regulation, and must still be accepted at all depots.
We’re asking all Yukoners to safely dispose of non-beverage glass in household waste, and focus on reducing and reusing when possible.
