sell them on ebay

Some of the smaller charity shops will take them, either to use or sell.

(Ooo interrupted by a flame deer then!)

Take them to a charity shop?

Buy a hot glue gun and create yourself a friendly hanger buddy reindeer out of all those old hangers. The possibilities are endless...

I offer them to a charity shop and they always take them. Like dragonsmum said, if they can't use them, they can sell them.

Save them - one day you might need them . Just bought 10 from Poundland for err...... ah yes £1

how about in future tell the shop you don't want the hanger ?

Blue peter comes to mind here with some tinsel at this time of year (but that was wire ones if I remember correctly)

Hang about I'll have a think.

Like the others have said charity shops should take them

had a mass clear out so got loads of hangers to lose

Rip out the metal hook, then chuck them.... If it comes back, it's a boomerang!

I could also sell the metal! quids in!

Save them up for several years then open a shop selling vintage hangers

freecycle to any students, universities never provide enough. Leave in hotel wardrobes, same issue.

I don't keep any hangers at my house. Still traumatized at my mothers ability to boomerang them around corners and get me when I was younger. Shame I can't continue her tradition nowadays.

I find that if you tie them all together and smear liberally in beef flavoured yoghurt, they make excellent bear traps in the rocky mountains

Showing your age, I remember that one. Hey down Shep. X)

Tesco used to accept them for recycling but I don't think they do it anymore as that's where I used to take mine.:(

Local charity shops will usually be happy to take them off your hands as people donate dresses/ tops/ trousers etc that need hanging up nicely to display and sell.

Sorry to keep you hanging ha!

I've got about 200 of the thin dry cleaner hangers as my dry cleaner doesn't seem to want to save money by re-using them.

Maybe I'll make an art piece and go for the next Turner prize
