For moving out of your home or just cleaning out, here are some Smart Solutions to a recycling challenge for unwanted sports equipment. From the pages of www.gridphilly.com:
Keep treadmills, tennis balls, tired sneakers and more out of the landfill.
Fact: Approximately 20,000 TONS of tennis balls end up in landfills every year.
The internet is full of boutique recyclers: www.rebounces.com re-pressurizes old, bounceless tennis balls; www.recycleyourmat.com takes yoga mats; and @greentrophyprog on Twitter accepts the spoils of your athletic victories (trophies, medals, plaques and awards).
For donating all sporting goods, go to www.goodwillnj.org to locate a donation center near you. Play It Again Sports at 610.651.0202, 1004 Lancaster Ave, Berwyn, PA
may even give you a few bucks for your stuff.
