Do I need to remove the paper label before I recycle glass bottles?

    You do not have to remove the label when recycling glass. If you do not, they will remove the caps and labels at the recycling plant. However, if the labels are not completely removed this can disrupt the process by introducing other materials to a process designed for pure glass. It can degrade the quality of the glass produced and even create a recycled product which consumers will not buy. If you want to help out and to be certain your bottles are recycled it is a good idea to remove the label.
