BROKEN sinks, tubs, toilets, tiles and concrete are broken into bits here and reused as material in drain fields, by heavy duty equipment owned by the county we live in. I saw a lady plant pretty flowers in an old claw foot tub in her yard and another used an old metal bed with springs and planted tall sunflowers under it and the springs supported the flowers and it was just a thing of beauty on their farm yard. I like to collect a variety of tiles, unused, when I get quite a few that look good together, I do a wall up, now that is a piece of art. I saw a wall in the basement with countertop where the sink had been mounted against the wall and they painted the wall where the hole was with black board paint for creative little hands. The countertop was the ledge for the chalk and eraser. Countertops can be cut down and made into a small built-in ledge as a desk in bedrooms or recover a damaged dresser or table top. Cabinets that are not built-in can be used in the home (laundry room, closets, basement, anywhere) or the garage, else you can sell them and they get quite a bit for them here or donate to charity. The built-in ones you can recycle the fronts (doors). Non working appliances, plumbing (copper), water heaters can be taken to metal recycling centers, here all metals are recycled in one place and they pay you for it. Even shingles are recycled by asphalt company, some process to remove the tar from them and that is mixed in asphalt for driveways, roadways and parking lots, they also melt down old tires and add them too. They say it makes the roads last longer. If you do some checking you can recycle almost anything. Life is good, share the planet, it makes sense!
