Remove Non-Plastic Pieces
If your plastic furniture contains metal screws or some other kind of non-plastic part, you’ll need to break it down and separate those pieces before you can recycle it.
Ways to Reduce
Avoid Mixed-Material Furniture
You can reduce the impact of plastic furniture on the environment by looking for pieces that are made of recycled materials, as well as ones which aren’t made of mixed materials. Look for furniture that’s made entirely of plastic, or that can be separated easily.
