How to Recycle Used Golf Clubs
Your golf clubs are no longer useful to you. You have given up the sport or better yet, gotten some newer clubs. Now you need to get rid of your used golf clubs. The best way to do that is not throwing them in the trash, but rather recycling them. The best way to recycle them is to sell them to someone else who can get some good use out of them. You can do this with other used equipment as well.
What you should first do when recycling your used golf clubs is get them in good shape. You want to clean them up and make them look nice. If there is anything major wrong with them get it fixed. If it can't be fixed then take it to the recycling center to be recycled.
Where to Sell
Once you have your clubs or whatever used equipment you are selling in good condition and ready to sell you can either sell it to a store or sell it yourself.
Selling to a store offers some pros and cons:
you get paid for them right away
no hassle selling them
no cost to you to sell them
cannot always get the price you want
may not sell if the store does not have a need for them
Selling yourself has some pros and cons, as well
you control the selling price
you can offer it to a large number of buyers for great competition
you have to arrange the shipping or delivery
you may get stiffed on the payment
you may have to register at various places in order to sell
Whatever method you choose you should be able to find a buyer. You may not make a fortune off of them, but whatever you make it will be more than you would make by just throwing them away.
If Selling Just Is Not for You
If you really do not want to sell them, then consider donating them. You may be able to donate them to a local school or a charity. This is a nice thing to do and is still way better than just throwing them in the trash.
No matter what choice you make in getting rid of your used golf clubs - recycling, selling or donating - you are going to be keeping them from a landfill. They will sit in the landfill for years because they are made of materials that do not break down easily. You can feel good that you helped reduce landfill waste.
