You may find that over the years your household crockery is broken or updated. Before throwing away any pieces, consider donating usable pieces to charities, or secondhand shops.
Crockery is often collectible and even odd pieces may be valuable to a collector. Broken crockery can also be used in mosaics, so consider contacting a local craft group.
Broken or unwanted crockery must not be put in the recycling bin. It has the potential to contaminate recyclables and ruin the quality of recycled materials.
If necessary, only dispose of crockery in your general waste bin.
