    Default Recycling old window sash weights

    I recently replaced some old sash windows and ended up with several sash weights. Instead of tossing them in the landfill, I use them as tarp weights for my boat. I put a golf ball inside the tarp and wrap a piece of twine or wire to hold it in place. Then I attach the sash weight. Works great, even in strong winds.

    Good idea!

    There are other avenues for disposal of unwanted weights as well, such as architectural salvage yards and scrap metal recyclers. In most cases, your limitations are only limited by your imagination. Kudo's on your use as tarp weights.
