A very common question: "Can I recycle an old / broken mirror?"
Well, mirrors are hard to recycle due to the coating used on the glass to make it reflective.
Recycling mirror glass with your regular glass may contaminate the entire bin and you know... make the entire thing unusable altogether!
If your mirror is in one piece and in good nick, try donating it to a friend, someone in need or a charity shop.
If it's broken, it's perfect for craft projects (but please be careful!).
If you're not into crafting, you can throw mirror pieces away, but be sure to wrap them in newspaper so they don't harm the folks handling your black bin‼️
There you go!
