How to Dispose of Mirrors Safely in Singapore: Tips from Greenery Recycle

Mirrors are an essential part of our daily lives, from the decorative pieces in our living rooms to the practical ones in our bathrooms. However, when it comes time to replace or dispose of them, many of us find ourselves at a loss. Mirrors aren’t just tricky to handle; they require special disposal methods to ensure safety and environmental responsibility. Here’s a guide on how to dispose of mirrors safely in Singapore.

Why Proper Mirror Disposal Matters → 

Mirrors pose unique challenges when it comes to disposal. Their glass can easily shatter, causing injury and creating hazardous waste. Moreover, improper disposal can lead to environmental damage. In Singapore, where sustainability and safety are prioritised, it’s crucial to follow proper disposal guidelines.

Steps to Dispose of Mirrors Safely → 

  1. Wrap It Up: Before disposing of your mirror, wrap it in several layers of newspaper or bubble wrap. This prevents shattering and protects both you and the waste collectors from injury.
  1. Use a Sturdy Box: Place the wrapped mirror in a sturdy cardboard box. Fill any gaps with packing material to prevent movement and potential breakage during transit.
  1. Label Clearly: Clearly label the box with “Fragile” and “Glass” to alert waste handlers to the contents, ensuring they take extra care.
  1. Donation Options:  If your mirror is still in good condition, consider donating it. Many organisations and groups accept mirrors as part of their furniture donation programs. For larger mirrors, you can explore groups focused on furniture sales and giveaways. For detailed information on where to donate furniture in Singapore, visit this guide.
  1. Bulk Waste Disposal Services: If you have a large mirror or multiple items, consider a bulk waste disposal service. These services are equipped to handle larger items and can ensure mirrors are disposed of responsibly.
