Recycling Gift Cards

I've mentioned my affinity for recycling before {read more here and here}.  I also love shopping, so have no trouble using up gift cards when I'm lucky enough to receive them.  ;)  Which left me wondering what to do with all of these...

I've been looking for an eco-friendly way to dispose of all the gift cards I've been hoarding gathering over the past year or so {much to my hubby's chagrin}.  A quick Google search led me to this article, and although it offered some good options for re-use or re-purposing, I was really looking for some straight up recycling and was too lazy to mail them into EarthWorks.  So I kept searching and found, a website that directs you to local recycling centers based on the product you wish to recycle.  Luckily, by looking under "Plastic", I found a gift card recycling receptacle existed just a few minutes away at our local Best Buy.

So, while we were out doing some shopping in the neighborhood this weekend, we dropped off the gift cards in the receptacle!  Now we have some more space in our drawer and the plastic cards can be recycled instead of sitting around collecting dust.  Easy peasy!

Happy Recycling!
