    why would i contact a local farmer for broken glass disposal?
    • BenD@Recyclebank 3 months ago

      You probably wouldn't. But you might want to contact a local framer, because they may be able to use the glass, or they may have a glass-disposal system already in place.

    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.

    I remember one of the home repair shows where they took broken glass to this guy who made countertops from the broken pieces. I can't remember the show now, however, he had this method to compact broken shards of glass into forms for countertops. They turned out beautiful. Sorry I can't remember the name of show, but, maybe someone out there also remembers it.

    I don't have curbside recycling where I live, but take all my recyclables to one of the nearby recycling containers. This consists of large metal receptacles - one for glass (divided into clear glass and colored glass), one for cardboard, and several for mixed recyclables. When I recycle the glass, my only option is to drop them into the large metal container ... where I can hear them break as they hit either the bottom of the container or other glass already in the container. It can't be helped!
