How can I reuse or recycle car bumpers?

Car bumperWe’ve had an email from “Kinjo Jan”, saying:

hello good people, i am new in recycling. would you please tell me if the plastic in the modern cars’ bumpers is recycleable?

That’s a very good question – but I don’t know the answer. I suspect it’s usually fibreglass more than plastic though but may very well be wrong. Does anyone else?

And what about reuses for them?

    I have seen a few instances where people have used bumpers as a flower bed. Grab the bumper and get rid of any sharp edges and grease, fill it with earth and plant some flowers – you do see some surprising results.
