Recycle Plastic Baskets

Laundry baskets are made out of a plastic that can be recycled, so break down the basket and then recycle it.

Do Not Compost Wicker

Some wicker baskets are made from natural fibers but some are not. For this reason, these baskets should not be composted, so place in the trash.

Cloth or Collapsible Baskets

If your laundry basket is collapsible or made of cloth, it cannot be recycled. Depending on the cloth (if it’s natural and not too durable), you can tear it up into small pieces and compost.

Ways to Reuse

Organize Your Home

Use unwanted laundry baskets as organizers for your home. They can help keep kids’ toys off the ground, or serve as great organizers for your car to hold jumper cables or cleaning supplies.
