Golf Anyone?

"Golf combines two favorite American pastimes: taking long walks and hitting things with a stick."~P.J. O'Rourke


I was excited to discover that one of America's most beloved sports has a key component that is recyclable. That's right, you can recycle golf balls!


Living next to a golf course, I frequently stumble across stray balls that apparently were victims of a miscalculated swing. I used to clean them up, and see if anyone wanted to reuse them. However, I never knew that there are companies that specialize in recycling golf balls. For avid golfers, hopefully this means that there will always be an abundant supply!


Golf balls are a key aspect of a successful round of golf. What are they made of? A two-piece ball is made of rubber and plastic, and is most commonly used by the casual golfer.


So, how do you recycle a golf ball? Here are some options:


OnlyGolfBalls.com will buy old balls in bulk, and feature a wide variety of used golf balls online.


You can also purchase recycled or used balls at lostgolfballs.com, where the balls are professionally cleaned and ready for reuse.


Either way, the game just got greener!

Recycling creates four jobs for every one job created in the waste management and disposal industries.
