You can recycle plastic laundry baskets in most curbside recycling programs. Since they are made of Polypropylene (PP #5), a recyclable plastic with a low recycling rate, it is best to check with your municipality before throwing it in the recycling bin. If the basket is too big, break it down beforehand.

Where To Recycle
- Use Recycling Locators: Locate specialized recycling programs near you using RecycleNation & Earth911 (US) or RecycleNow (UK).
- Upcycle & Repurpose: If the laundry basket is not broken, you can always use it for something else and give it a second life. Pinterest always has great upcycling ideas.
- 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.
