Q: In honor of Earth Day, I was wondering if you could suggest an earth-friendly way to get rid of exhausted kitchen gear. It's time to get rid of my melted spatula and scratched-up omelet pan but would hate for them to go to a landfill if they can be recycled. Any suggestions? Sent by Amelia Editor: Amelia, yes, we have definitely sent old plastic cookware out in the recycling bin. Check your local guidelines. For more discussion, check out these past posts on Re-Nest: • What To Do With Old Non-Stick Pans? What To Do With Old Plastic Food Containers? And here's one more resource on this: • Recycle or reuse old pots and pans at GreenYour Readers, any advice for Amelia?
