What would you like to Recycle?

Mirrors

Mirrors

Older mirrors are glass with a layer of reflecting silver on the back side of the glass. The silver was then coated with a protective layer of paint. Newer mirrors sometimes use aluminum instead, but the process remains the same. Regardless, recycle your old mirror instead of throwing it in the trash.

How do I go green?

Use old mirrors in out of the way spaces, like dark hallways in the basement, potting sheds, garages to brighten up a space.

Have a broken mirror? It’s not bad luck, it’s an opportunity to make art. Mirror shards, handled carefully, are the perfect material for mosaics.

    Silver and aluminum don’t belong in our landfills, and glass takes an eternity to degrade.
