Produce baskets are commonly made of plastic or cardboard. Here are some responsible methods to avoid sending them to the landfill:

1. Reuse: If the produce basket is still in good condition, consider reusing it for future grocery shopping trips or for organizing items at home.

2. Donation: Some food banks or community organizations may accept produce baskets for repackaging and distributing food to those in need. Contact local organizations to see if they have a use for them.

3. Recycling: If the produce basket is made of plastic, it can be recycled. Check with your local recycling facility to see if they accept plastic baskets. Cardboard baskets can also be recycled in most recycling programs.
