Where can I donate plastic hangers near me? Salvation Army is always looking for hangers. Just keep in mind they need plastic hangers and they don’t accept wire clothes hangers. Besides those options, you can donate your old hangers to local dry cleaners, schools/daycare centers, drift shops, shelters, nursing homes, or even hospitals.
Can you put clothes hangers in the recycle bin? Metal clothes hangers, also known as wire hangers, cannot be recycled in a standard recycling bin. This is because the hooked end can damage recycling machinery. They can, however, be recycled through scrap metal recycling.
Can you recycle hangers at Target? Per Target’s website, garment hangers are NOT listed as an acceptable item to place in their recycling bins. You can view a list of the items Target will recycle here.
What do you do with hangers you don’t need?
- Donate to Charity. You can only do this if the metal hanger is usable and in proper condition.
- Give Them to Your Dry Cleaner. Alternatively, you could give them out to your dry cleaner to use in their day-to-day work.
- Take Them to Your Laundry.
- Give to Freecycle.
- Toss Them in the Trash.
