You can not recycle plastic chairs. Even though they are made from recyclable polypropylene (PP) #5 or high-density polyethylene (HDPE) #2 plastic, they are not accepted in curbside recycling bins due to their size and shape. Use a specialized recycling program or throw them in the trash.

Where To Recycle
- Use Recycling Locators: Locate specialized recycling programs near you using RecycleNation & Earth911 (US) or RecycleNow (UK).
- Donate to thrift shops: If the chair is still functional, you can always give it away to a thrift shop. They accept all kinds of weird stuff, including plastic chairs.
- Give them away on FreeCycle: If you just want to give them away, you can always use the FreeCycle website and create a post for free.
