Can You Recycle Pens?
Unfortunately, pens are not easy to recycle. In order for your pens to be accepted, you have to first separate them into their different parts. Contact your local recycler to see if they'll take your old pens before you take the time to sort them into different pieces.
Cheap pens are usually made of two different types of plastic : polystyrene (PS) and polypropylene (PP). Luxury pens, on the other hand, are created using stainless steel or aluminum. Either way, these materials aren't always accepted for recycling, so it's much better to repurpose or donate your old pens if possible.
