More glass recycling
There used to be a lot of glass bottle recycling back 20-30 years ago. It seemse less so now. I think it should be increased again since there's still a lot of glass usage. And not just bottles but jars and containers. I think al glass can be broken up, melted and reused again.

I wonder how much energy is used in melting down glass to be reused. It seems like a step backward to use glass as a single use container. It would be great if we found a way to reuse/refill glass containers/bottles instead.
You can currently recycle all your glass bottles (jars, etc) via the City's blue bin curbside recycling program. http://vancouver.ca/engsvcs/solidwaste/recycling/howto.htm
