CERAMIC MUGS AND PLATES

Not Recycled

The ceramic cups that you use to drink coffee and tea from, including plates, are not accepted for recycling.

Why is it not recyclable?

The melting points for ceramics and your general clear glass are different, and most recycling facilities cannot melt ceramics. If recycled, the ceramics will only damage the quality of the clear recycled glass.

For all that, places that accept rubble like bricks and concrete would sometimes also accept ceramic waste to use it as raw material for roads and other constructions.

Alternatives

  • Use them in your garden to catch the water that drips from the plant pots.

  • Grow some small herbs directly in them.
