An advancing glacier is like an ice making machine with the output being dropped on a conveyor belt. The ice travels along until the temperature of the surrounding environment stops it from proceeding any further by causing it to melt. When a glacier recedes, the conveyor belt is not switched to "reverse", it just means that the point at which it melts is moving closer to the ice making machine.
The biggest cause of glaciers receding is Global Warming. The temperature of the Earth is getting to warm to support this glaciers in their fullest form.
A glacier is always moving forward (downhill). In the winter, the glacier usually isn't melting and its front edge (or "toe") will advance downhill. In the summer, the toe of the glacier usually melts faster than the glacier is moving forward, causing the front edge of the glacier to recede. If the recession in the summer is greater than the advance in the winter, then the glacier as a whole is receding and will eventually disappear. That is what is currently happening to most of the glaciers in North America and many other places around the world.

One glacier in Washington state, the White Chuck glacier, receded 1.2 miles in a period of 33 years, and lost half of its area in 47 years.
An extensive pile of till (loose debris & rocks) called an end moraine can build up at the front of the glacier and is typically crescent shaped. Two kinds of end moraines are recognized: terminal and recessional moraines. A terminal moraine is the ridge of till that marks the farthest advance of the glacier before it started to recede. A recessional moraine is one that develops at the front of the receding glacier; a series of recessional moraines mark the path of a retreating glacier.
