What do you do with them?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I use litter that comes in the plastic jugs, and am having trouble figuring out what to do with it. Do you just throw it in the recycle bin, save it and take it to a certain place, or throw it away?

According to my building superintendent, they go out with the recyclables.

Unfortunately, here in frankfurt we dont recycle so i have forgotten where things go...
But from my memory in australia we had 3 bins, one for rubbis, one was in halved for cardboard and plastic and one was for gardening.
BUt our litter here comes in paper so i cant help you

If it is plastic there should be a small triangle on the bottom with a number on it. The number lets you know if it is recyclable or not. Check with your local municple website to see what "numbers" of plastic they accept for recycling.

Just throw them in the weekly trash.

I use mine as a temporary home for the scoopage I do during the week, that way I don't have to take the trash out everyday. (And yes I bag the scoop or yucky would it stink. I take them out to the trash everyweekend.

Plastic Jugs are great for putting used motor oil or antifreeze in to be recycled. You can be used for other recycleable liquids.

I wash them out and reuse them here and there. Alot of them hold small toys for the boys to take with us when we go out of town. The ones I don't reuse, I throw in the recycling bins.

I second that! I use them when I change the oil on my car. I also try to buy the litter refill in the large box and refill the plastic jugs, insted of constantly acquiring new ones.

We just recycle them along with everything else allowed. They should sort it out.

Peace,

Sure, I think Susan does that. It's really nice because that way you don't have to wash the shakers.

You really do need to rinse them well though or else the drinks taste kinda gritty.

I save mine and use them then when I buy stall dry, then just pour the stall dry into the jugs and cart the jugs upstairs. A lot better than handling a 30 pound bag of stall dry up the stairs-

I buy one and take it back to refill when I am running out of litter
Our pet place has a big bin of litter and you just refill it... after the first time you buy it they slap a sticker on says "REFILL" and it is cheaper than buying a new jug everytime!
It isn't really a jug though, more like a big square tub with handles
