Recycle Coat Hangers – It’s a Good Idea


It’s a Good Idea with Angela Oberer Recycle Coat hangers Tip #1207 Hi there, I’m Angela Oberer and if you’re
like me, you have a bunch of extra coat hangers kicking around your closets. Well, that might
have something to do with the fact that dry cleaners hand out over 3.6 billion coat hangers
every year to their customers for clothes they have cleaned.
In terms of steel, that breaks down to the equivalent of 60,000 cars. I know, that’s
a lot of steel right? Well coat hangers are recyclable, but lots
of curbside services don’t accept them because those curved hooks can get caught in the automated
recycling equipment and damage them. So give them back to dry cleaners because
we know they use them right? And it will save them money on buying new ones.
The coated hangers that have the petroleum polymer coatings cannot be returned to dry
cleaners and they don’t want your plastic or wood hangers either. But you can send those
to thrift stores or consignment stores that use coat hangers for clothes that they resell.
So organize your coat hangers and pack them up so they are easy to put in your car, and
that makes it easier for the dry cleaner to use as well.
Recycle your coat hangers, It’s another little thing you can do to help save the planet and
it’s a good idea. That is a good idea.
