Can I Recycle Old Kitchen Cookware and Tools?

Good Questions

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?
