Clothes / Coat hangers can be made from various materials – wood, metal or plastic. If you don’t need them they can often be donated to charity shops or given to dry cleaners and retailers who will use them again.
People are always looking for hangers. If you have enough spare, advertise them on Gumtree and someone will more than likely collect them from you in person. If you want to get rid of them quickly put them on for free!
Where can I recycle?
If they are broken try contacting your local council as local recycling centres have recycling containers for wood, metal and plastic where they could be recycled. Always check with your local council in the first instance.
