Pyrex, a popular brand of heat-resistant glass, is a versatile material that can be recycled or reused in various ways to avoid ending up in the landfill. Here are some methods to responsibly dispose of Pyrex:

  • Recycling: Pyrex glass can be recycled along with other glass products. However, it's important to note that regular glass recycling facilities may not accept Pyrex due to its different melting properties. Contact your local recycling center to verify if they accept Pyrex or if there are any specific guidelines for recycling it.
  • Reusing: If your Pyrex still in good condition, consider donating it or giving it away to someone in need. Many second-hand stores, online platforms, or local charities accept kitchenware donations.
  • Disposal: If your Pyrex is broken, chipped, or no longer usable, it should be disposed of in the regular trash. Pyrex is not considered hazardous and does not pose any safety risks when handled properly.
