NO, the metal hangers damage recycling sorting equipment and we have no market for the plastic hangers.
Most scrap yards will recycle metal hangers. You can visit Earth911 and search “metal hangers” to find the closest scrap yard location. You can also try to other options listed below:
- Contact your town to see if they have a scrap metal dropoff or will take them on scrap metal collection days.
- Bring them to the Convenience Center at the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex, 22000 Burlington-Columbus Road, Florence, NJ 08518.
Unfortunately, at this time, we are unaware of any programs that recycle plastic hangers. Other than finding creative ways to reuse them, they should be put in your household trash.
