Recycling Political Campaign Signs
My biggest pet peeve around here is that after the election our city is littered with election signs and issue signs that no one ever gets around to picking up.
So here is my solution. Everyone out there in Thrifty tip land probably has had a yard sale or two so here is my deal, grab up those signs and recycle them for your next yard sale.
The ones that are just a plastic sleeve over a wire base can be reused by sliding off the plastic sleeve. Cut down a white kitchen trash bag and sizing it down to fit on the white frame snugly. Use big stick on letters to tell about your next sale.
The ones that are rigid foam board can be spray painted to cover campaign slogans and your info stenciled on instead. Recycling at its best I say.

In Johannesburg, SA is a job creation project where bags are made from billboards. Very funky and popular!

I agree. I own onedollarsigns.com an online yard sign site. I will try and relay the message to my customers on the site as well. I think it's a great idea!
Or you could just reverse the plastic sign and use it first! Just use and indelable marker!
Great hints! I love them!
