Wire hangers are one of our daily essentials which we usually dispose them while they are old even they can still be used. However, does anyone curious about whether wire hangers are recyclable or not? In fact, the answer is, they are, but many of us do not recycle. The best way to dispose of your wire hangers is to return them to your dry cleaner for re-use. We have heard of a few cleaners who refuse to take them back, but if they are in good condition most will accept returns and then re-use them.
Unlike those plastic bottles or glasses which are widely recycle and reused by the public, wire hangers are disposed to regular trash without classifying. Can you believe that this results in 3.5 billion hangers ending up in our landfills every year?
To improving our environment, we should not just follow the propaganda by the government, but start from ourselves.
