Can I recycle ceramic dishes?

    According to the Earth Day Recycling 101 brochure, ceramics cannot by recycled. In fact, contaminants such as ceramics, other types of glass, metal rings, and caps cause problems in the recycling process and must be kept out of recyclable glass. Ceramics, for example, have a higher melting temperature than glass. When mixed with recyclable glass in the melting furnace, the ceramic pieces become embedded in new glass, resulting in defective and unacceptable new glass containers.
