What to Do with an Old Mirror? A Guide to Responsible Exchange.

Hi there! Thank you for visiting our blog. Today, we would like to address a topic that often arises among our customers - what to do with an old mirror that we want to replace? How can we responsibly deal with an old mirror when it's time for something new? Here are a few practical tips.

1. Repair and Renewal

Before you get rid of an old mirror, consider whether it can be repaired or renewed. It's possible that the mirror just needs cleaning, polishing, or frame painting. There are many DIY guides that show how to give an old mirror new life.

2. Pass it On

If the mirror is in good condition but no longer suits your style, consider passing it on. Perhaps you have a friend or family member who could make use of it? You could also donate the mirror to a local thrift store or charity organization.

3. Sell it

You can sell your old mirror online. Auction sites, Facebook groups, and other platforms for selling used items are excellent places to try selling the mirror. Remember to describe the mirror's condition well and take high-quality photos.

4. Recycling

If the mirror is too old or damaged to pass on or sell, the last option is recycling. Not all recycling centers accept mirrors because the process of recycling mirror glass is different from regular glass. Contact your local recycling center to find out how to properly dispose of the mirror.

5. Creative Use

Old mirrors can be transformed into new decorative items. For example, you can create a mosaic from mirror pieces that will add sparkle to your garden or interior. However, remember that working with glass requires caution and sometimes professional assistance.


Before getting rid of an old mirror, consider the above options. Perhaps you can give it new life or pass it on to someone who will appreciate it.
