I walked by my neighbors trash can today, he always has used sporting equipment inside the trash. To a certain extent, he reuses. Every weekend he goes to garage sales and picks up sporting equipment, takes them to Play it again Sports to resell. When they don’t sell, he picks them back up and puts in the trash! I have rescued golf clubs, (in my garden) surfboards (gave away). Why he doesn’t call Goodwill, I don’t know!
So despite the fact, I have spoken to him about this, he continued to throw away used sporting equipment, and every Monday nite, I go through his trash!
The best thing you can do is to learn how to keep your skates lasting longer: Inline Now-has some helpful hints on reusing and keeping your skates (wheels in condition) 2.) Rent, borrow or buy used equipment 3.) if buying new- recycle your old equipment by either giving away, donating or reselling.
I just Gotta Tell Ya:
- The wheels are made of: urethane, or, more accurately, polyurethane.Urethane is composed of chemicals that bond together when heated. Once joined together, these chemicals are difficult to take apart, making it difficult to recycle.
- Some cities include stainless steel in their curbside recycling programs. That means all you have to do is put your old bearings in a paper bag and leave them in the bin.
- In other towns, you will have to drop your bearings off at a local scrap yard (scrap metal recycler).
