Normally, Second Use does not accept aluminum windows, as they don’t typically sell well. However, for the weekend of May 14 and 15 at Second Use (7953 2nd Ave. S.), we will accept salvaged aluminum windows for recycling. They must be aluminum, and they must be in tact (no shattered glass). We, in turn, will pass them along to GC Recycle. The company says it’s able to recycle 100 percent of the glass, aluminum frames and space bars. The service is free, but Second Use will accept small donations to defer the cost of the collection. For more information, contact [email protected].
