Disposing of undesirable cookware

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm switching over to healthier cookware, but am at a loss as to what to do with my old aluminum & non-stick pots and pans. I don't want to simply throw them out and I'm reluctant to donate them for someone else to use. Any ideas out there on how to dispose of them properly?

The only thing I can think of is finding a scraper? Lots of folks salvage scrap metal like old washers and dryers etc. If you know some one who does that maybe they can take it for you. Good luck!

If you put them on freecycle someone will take them.  Just list what they are as some people can be particular.  Put the box out by the porch and they will be gone!  Some family will be very grateful to have your 'undesirable' cookware.

We have a great local scrap yard that takes just about anything, including pots and pans (even Christmas lights!) and you even get a bit of change back, or you can donate it to one of the charities on their list.  See if there is one near you, gather up any other old junk you have to make it worth the trip.  :)
