Warning message

Important Note

The Corning Museum of Glass is temporarily closed as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. All previously scheduled classes, events, and programs are cancelled until further notice.

Approximately 80% of the glass containers turned in for recycling are made into new containers. Each recycled container saves enough energy to run a 60-watt light bulb for four hours. There are also many secondary uses for recycled glass, including aggregate for concrete and blacktop, a melting agent used in forming bricks, for filtration, and as an abrasive.
