When you have a lot of old PVC pipe around your home that you need to get rid of it can be a chore. The information below will share several eco friendly ways to get rid of unwanted PVC pipe.
Many communities have a recycling day that runs in tandem with regular garbage pickup. You can put the old PVC pipe out for recycling and not with regular garbage. This ensures the PVC pipe will not be in a landfill for many decades to come.
There are many charitable organizations that build homes for the homeless or update older homes. These organizations are always looking for help with their projects. You can donate the old PVC pipe to them to use in their projects. Depending on your location you may be able to claim a portion of the cost on your taxes.
You can take the PVC pipe to many home stores and they will be able to throw the pipe into a chipper. This will cut the PVC pipe into small pieces which you can use as inexpensive mulch.
If you don't have a lot to dispose of you can use it as a way to divert water from downspouts.
