It’s an easy mistake made. You welcome your child into the world, and soon after by an abundance of toys. There are so many toys on the market and when your child is young you wish for them to have all of the options. But as they grow older the toys no longer become practical and soon your toy room is over flowing with toys.
Before you know it, you have many broken, well-loved plastic and wooden toys piled up. Instead of simply throwing the old toys away, think about how to recycle the kids toys you have.
Sort out the toys into sections. Some plastics and be recycled and made into different things. Check what can actually be recycled before you throw it away.
If you have wooden toys, these can also be recycled or burned, depending on the varnish . The best way to recycle old toys is to reuse them. If they are in perfect condition try giving them to an op shop or donating to a hospital. Children will be able to get use out of something, rather than you add to the waste pile.
Reusing old toys is the best way to recycle. Passing them down to other children of your own, or to other family members is the quickest and easiest way of recycling the pile. Remember before you buy toys- make sure you buy toys that are made from little or no plastic. These toys will easily break and are harder to break down, creating an environmental hazard.
