I have a 2x1 meter (0.3cm width) glass door that I need to dispose of. The recycling center told me they do not accept such large items. So, I need to break it into smaller pieces, to be thrown into the glass recycling bin (where glass bottles go).
Thus, I need a safe and handy method to break the glass. Safe because I don't want to hurt myself whilst breaking the glass. Handy because I do not want to spread the glass everywhere. Recall I need to throw it into the recycling bin.
Regarding the size of the glass, the recycling bin can take glass chips, but it can also handle larger bits (e.g. 10x10 cm).
Below is the method I am thinking of. I hide it so it doesn't "prime" your ideas. You might want to think this from scratch.
What I'm thinking of now is to cover the glass in a plastic membrane, put it in the floor lying down, and then with a hammer, hit the glass. This would protect me from glass bits and also help as a transport method.
