You can also donate them to your local Girl Scouts or Cub Scouts, they are always handy for crafty things!

Post a free on craigslist/freecycle. Since it's spring time many times people are looking for these to do children's resale events and garage sales.

And lately I have seen people use them to make words out of the wire and display it as decor in their homes.

I have many wire hangers that I need to part with. I would love to donate them. Does anyone know where I could donate them? Anyone out there need wire hangers?

You could probably drop them off at something like the Salvation Army thrift stores. If they can't use them they would probably know someplace that could. Most of those places have an outdoor site where people can drop things off. (04/02/2010)

Bring them to your nearest dry cleaners. They always take them and they even have a special box to store them in for return. (04/02/2010)

Go online and see if you have a Freecycle group in your area. This is a program where you offer something you no longer want and someone that wants it contacts you. You can also ask for things you would like to have. This is money free, you can not charge for anything you are giving away and cannot be charged for anything you ask for. These are terrific groups, I monitor one. (04/04/2010)

Return them to the local small business owner who provided them to you originally. We can build our own jobs by helping them keep their cost down, they stay in business and you are able to continue to use their business at a reasonable rate. Everyone wins. (04/05/2011)

I have hundreds of extra wire hangers and do not want to throw them away. How can I dispose of them?

We recycled them. Cut them apart, fold the pieces and used these to hold corners and edges of the weed mat we put under our rock garden. I found most of our hangers at garage sales. (02/16/2009)

Ever hear of freecycle.org? It is where you can post "offers' and "wanted" in your area, all must be free. (02/17/2009)

Post an ad to craigslist under the free column. (02/17/2009)

Who will take my wire hangers?

A thrift store, second-hand store, or maybe a small local clothing boutique will take them. I put them with our clothes when we donate to Purple Hearts, or the St. Vincent DePaul thrift store. (02/17/2009)

My son worked for over a year at a shop that supplied uniforms from a service. Now I have literally thousands of wire hangers. I am in the process of moving and need to find someone who need/wants wire hangers. Any suggestions?
