Same here, plastics and paper only in the recycle bin. There are still a few places around that'll take 'em, but ya gotta drive for miles to get to them. Easier to make it the landfill's problem, and a lot less expensive. I'm not sure why our recycle pickup excludes glass. My guess is that it's just a bit more hazardous to handle (breakage, shards on the road, etc).
I can remember a time when glass companies were BEGGING for glass to recycle, and some places even started fining folks for putting glass in landfill waste. I used to do some service work for a glass company (Brockway Glass) in Montgomery, AL years ago. One of their biggest customers and one of the last to get away from glass bottles was Coca Cola. The process for (MELT IT) recycling is a lot easier than making new, and obviously more efficient. They'd have mountains of crushed recyclables that they would use to add to their virgin glass for the bulk. That let them use a lot less of the purifying chemicals and remelt takes a lot less energy/fuel than refining. No difference in the sintering, though. Still gotta relieve the stress in a cooling bottle the same way. The piles of recycle stock were absolutely gorgeous. Crushed clear glass looks like a mountain of snow or sugar, green like a huge pile of mint ice cream, and brown like a mountain of gold. Brockway's long since gone the way of the dodo bird down here, though. Another stable employer destroyed by the plastics industry. The plant was so old it would have cost a fortune to automate and update it.
And I was probably listening to the referenced song as a new hit when I was doing the work down there.
