Recycling – Airstream parts we removed

What are we doing with the Airstream parts we remove?  Putting them in a landfill? Trying not to.  Our goal during this remodel has been to recycle parts and get them into the hands of other RVers who want them and can use them.  So here is the list of what has been removed and where it went.

 

 

Lights:  Free to a local RVer

Non-electric Jack:  Free to a local RVer

Dinette and table:  Sold to a local RVer

Fold out table:  Sold to a local RVer

Toilet:  Sold to a local RVer

Mattress:  Free to a local RVer

Microwave: Sold to a local RVer – freed up 40 lbs and extra storage space

Bathroom door and wall divider: Used to create additional cabinet space in the Airstream

Old shower door: Free to local RVer

Curtains:  Donated to our local Goodwill

Accordion room divider: Sold to an RVer

Couch fabric (we reupholstered the couch):  Donated to local fabric store

Magazine holder: Donated to Goodwill

Cabinet handles: Donated to Goodwill

Floor carpet:  This was dirty, used and in our opinion not healthy.  This we threw away.

Wall carpet:  This was dirty, used and in our opinion not healthy.  This we threw away.

Everything else we have kept in the Airstream.

  1. Good for you to get this stuff into the hands of other RVers. There are so many of us out there that it’s pretty easy to find someone to buy or just take used items. Great site by the way. I agree with the carpet – that stuff is full of chemicals.

  2. Thanks Jane – that has definitely been our goal to keep everything out of the land fill. We have pretty much succeeded with that… like I said except for the carpet which did not find a new home.

  3. I thought I was seeing things, there was our new to us trailer
    Just home last night from a 3000 mile trip to pick it up.
    Our Ford burned lots of gas, not happy with that.
    The unit is heavy, I will be looking at all you have done,
    I need to lighten it as much as practical.
    Ours is a 2005 25ft, does not have a dinette, so it is not
    the same floor plan.
    Thanks,
    Dwight

  4. Hey Dwight – congrats on the new rig. Let us know what you end up renovating and what green features you choose!
