Coat Hangers

Don't put hangers in recycling bins: hangers get caught in machinery at recycling facilities.Some charitable organizations accept hangers for reuse or resale. Metal hangers are accepted for reuse by some dry cleaners and are also accepted for recycling as scrap metal at most transfer stations. Disposal is available to all District residents at the Clean Sweep Collection, Greenfield Transfer Station, or WTE Metal Recycler. Disposal is available for residents of Bernardston, Buckland, Colrain, Conway, Deerfield, Heath, Montague, New Salem, Northfield, Orange, Rowe, Warwick, and Wendell at their towns' transfer stations.
Unfortunately plastic hangers are not recyclable and should be thrown away if no longer usable.
