It is almost BBQ season and as we roll out our rusty BBQ’s don’t throw them in the trash. In our neighborhood, we put old BBQ’s in the alley for people to reuse for parts. You can recycle BBQ through local scrap dealers if the body is made of stainless steel, aluminum or other recyclable materials. The propane tanks can be reused and filled up. The shelving or grill part can be reusing in craft projects as well. Just in case you don’t want to go to all that trouble take a look at some inventive BBQ reuse ideas.

2.) You can also use a BBQ for a little Free Library. Clean it out and paint it.
