How can I reuse or recycle the spiral of a spiral bound notebook?
We’ve had an email from Emma, asking:
How can I recycle the spine from a spiral-bound notebook?
We’ve already covered plastic spines so let’s assume that Emma means the metal ones – because, well, I’ve got a couple lying around from old reporters pads after I’ve recycled the paper part.
A lot of pads are like the plastic ones – almost like teeth of metal (if that makes sense) rather than a spiral – and I suspect they’ll be harder to reuse because they can’t just be uncoiled.
