Clothes hangers

Ideas for reducing, reusing or recycling clothes hangers.


  • When clothes shopping decline free hangers where possible.


  • Some dry cleaners accept hangers − it is worth checking first with your local dry cleaner.


  • Some supermarkets now accept coat hangers for recycling. Check with your local store first.

  • If you are unable to reuse metal coat hangers take them to the household waste recycling centres (HWRC) and put them in the metal skip.
