How to Responsibly Dispose of Brushes and Combs

When it's time to replace your brushes and combs, it's important to dispose of them responsibly. Both brushes and combs are typically made of plastic, which falls under the Plastic category.

To avoid sending them to the landfill, here are a few methods you can use to dispose of your brushes and combs:

  1. Recycle: Check with your local recycling center to see if they accept plastic brushes and combs. If they do, make sure to clean the brushes and combs before recycling them.
  2. Reuse: If your brushes and combs are still in good condition, consider donating them to a local shelter, community center, or organization that accepts personal care items.
  3. Landfill: If recycling or donating is not an option, the last resort is to dispose of them in the regular trash. However, please note that plastic brushes and combs are not biodegradable and will contribute to the waste in landfills.

Remember, when disposing of plastic items, always aim to recycle or reuse them whenever possible to minimize their impact on the environment.
