Almost two years ago, I posted a notice saying that Target stores will take back plastic-and-metal hangers. Two of you corrected me: Target will take back its own hangers, but not others. It’s taken me way too long to do this, but I finally corrected my original post. If you’re still in doubt about how Target recycles hangers, here’s the corrected post.
An overdue thank you goes to the kind readers who called my attention to my error, and, of course, thanks to all of you who read my blog.

I own a consignment business and I’m forever amassing huge bulky hangers (plastic suit hangers, wooden coat hangers and individual high-end designer hangers). I’m good about donating them to a local charity, but sometimes they get overwhelmed. Where else can I recycle these? I cannot return them to department stores because it’s not the department store name on the hanger, but the individual designer from Italy or overseas. Any solutions?
