I have lots (over 90) wire clothes hangars. What can I do with them? I don't want to make crafts with them, Goodwill won't take them and the school Sculpture class doesn't want them. I hate to throw them away. Any suggestions as to whom could use them? My son will be getting 5 more each week when his uniforms are cleaned.

If I were you, I'd check out some of the local thrift shops. Many times people donate bags of clothing, but no hangers for the owner to hang the clothing. Fall is here and Christmas is coming. Hangers are ideal for making wreaths. There are many crafty ideas for these hangers.
Donate them to Nursing & Retirement homes. Most residents are in need of hangers. I have a relative that works in the laundry department and is always in need of hangers for the residents clothes...
Some dry cleaners will take them.
as a landscaper I am always looking for these (wire hangers) to cut my own landscape cloth staples or to use to pin down drip irrigation lines. Use them as supports for flimsy flower stalks both in the garden or in cut flower arrangements. email@example.com
I know this post re WIRE HANGERS was some time back but to anyone who sees this they make great Christmas door garlands. Bend the hanger into a circle and use this as a base wire. Keep the hook as is, but ensure it is also covered with(for example) 2-inch wide green crepe paper to wind tightly all round the wire (leftover decorations from last year?) and then decorate with recycled fake greenery, or cheaper still, use holly and cones from the garden.
2nd TIP: keep one or two in the closet for when that darn vacuum cleaner tube gets blocked and the instructions say "bend a length of fine wire...." (remember when that happens and you think, where do I get a length of fine wire!
The company my husband gets his uniforms from takes them back. Every week when he drops off his dirty uniforms, they have a box for the hangers too.
