Q.) Is stained glass recyclable?
A.) No, stained glass is not recyclable at this time. Most stained glass companies make their glass with slightly different melting points, and the raw material used to give the glass its colours both contribute to making stained glass incompatable with common commercial glass that is recyclable. (You might have seen in large public facilities different recycling bins for different coloured glass, usually clear and green or coloured glass. Well, there are an awful lot of different stained glass colours, and there just isn't enough stained glass out there to be recycled to have a solution created.)
