    Can you recycle nail polish ?

    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776

    OR

    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586
    Southwick, MA 01077.

    Old pots make very cute planters. Throw some rocks in the bottom for drainage and don't over water. You can also donate to day care centers for the children to dig with or put in a kitchen center.

    I set aside any metals that seem to be recyclable - though sometimes you wonder, is this all metal, or has there been plastics used to manufacture? Some foil products appear to be part metal, part plastic!

      If there is any plastic in the metal, it will separate during the smelting process. Can you SAFELY remove the suspected plastic parts?

    I had a very old pan that had lost its coating, I took the handle off and drove to a metal recycling place. They were ok with that, but maybe they were just being nice!

      Cookware, toasters, microwaves and such usually can be recycled at these large metal scrap yards. Just to be sure, give them a call. Any electronics that aren't accepted there will be accepted at an electronics recycling center. You can search online for the one nearest you. Good luck.
