Recycling Your Old Acrylic Bathtub Recycling Your Old Acrylic Bathtub
An acrylic bathtub is something that may not be very easy to recycle. You will find that acrylic is something that is not typically very recyclable. It is not biodegradable and is something that does not do well in landfills because of it. However, there are several things that you can do with an acrylic bathtub that will allow it to be able to do you good even after you no longer need it. A bathtub is something that you will need to get rid of eventually. While they will last for a long time and can get a few more years out of them by getting refinished, they still are only going to last you so long.
There are of course many more things that you will be able to do with a bathtub if you are able to take it out in one piece. If you have no use for a full bathtub for your home or yard, then there are plenty of farmers that use these just so that they can have something that they can use to give their animals water or food. Just make sure that your bathtub does not test positively for lead if you do this because it will cause damage to the animals.
Something else that you can do with a bathtub that was taken out in one piece is to use it as a place to garden. If you do not have a very big yard or wish to have your gardening done in a controlled location like a greenhouse, then you can simply fill your bathtub full of dirt and garden away. This is a great way for you to prevent any weeds or for the area to get out of control by keeping it in a bathtub.
If you often have a lot of people over for parties, then you will find that a bathtub is a great place to store cold drinks. Simply fill the bathtub up with ice and throw whatever type of drinks you wish into it.
Even if you do not have a farm, any pets that you have may be able to benefit from a bathtub. If you have outside dogs and live in a location that has an especially hot summer, simply fill the tub up with cold water and your dogs will have a mini swimming pool that they can cool off in whenever they get too hot.
If you happen to have a swimming pool surrounded by grass, then simply take your bathtub and use it as a way to keep your feet clean before entering the pool.
If you are unable to take your bathtub out in one full piece, then there are still a few things that you can do with it to allow you to be able to use it. If you are artistic, pieces of acrylic can be a lot of fun to build things with. You can also attempt to make an outdoor shower using the larger pieces of your acrylic bathtub.
