Do You Have an Unused Swing Set in the Backyard?

DID YOU KNOW?Wooden swing set

If your kids have outgrown the backyard swingset and it is still in good condition, it can be donated or sold.

However, if your swing set is rusty or unsafe, it can still avoid the landfill. Steel is an ideal material for recycling at your local scrapyard.

  1. Thanks for the links! I will pass it on.
    I encourage repurposing stuff you already have with my clients.
    I recently gave our playset to a neighbor with small children. They refurbished it and I still get to look at it but not have to take care of it! =) They did a wonderful job, changing the wood and repositioning the slide and steps. It came back to life!
