  • Call the place where you will recycle. Where my mother lives they like them smashed. Where I live I don't have too. I can even put the glass and plastic in the same bin. So just check!!! And good for you!!!

  • Our recycling is picked up at the street and they don't care if it is squashed or not.
    Call your local recycling center and find out.

  • I smash only to make room for others.

  • Our recycling is picked up every other week, so we smash to make sure that there is going to be room for two weeks worth.

  • My son does this for $$$$$- cans and plastic only as the glass doesn't pay as much and is harder to store/ handle. He does crush for ease of transport.
