With so many people now wearing disposable latex and vinyl gloves to protect their hands, you might wonder: Are the gloves reusable or recyclable? First, they are not reusable. They are designed for single-use wear and can actually spread germs if improperly handled or reused. Second, they are recyclable, but with a catch. The company TerraCycle offers a collection box you can purchase and fill up with gloves for recycling. The box is shipped to TerraCycle, where the gloves are sorted to be made into new products.
