How do I dispose of unwanted body lotions, shampoo and conditioners?

I have tons of old hair product and body lotions, and tossing it down the sink and into the water system seems un-earth-friendly. Should I bag them and throw them in the trash (then rinsing/recucling bottles, of course.)How do I dispose of unwanted body lotions, shampoo and conditioners?
Pour them down the sink, they will have minimal effects on surface water. Or, you can dilute them with water, and pour them on your lawn where they will act as a mild fertilizer.How do I dispose of unwanted body lotions, shampoo and conditioners?
Actually, you DONT want to put shampoo or dishwashing soaps down the sink. They are meant to be exposed of in small amounts down the sink and are therefore more harmful to the environment when disposed of in concentrate. Check out www.plentymag.com! Report Abuse

put in bag and throw away
Lotions and shampoo's are biodegradable and are meant to ';go down the drain'; with minimal concern to the envoronment. I would suggest emptyingthe contents down the drain, or into the toilet where they then go to your municipal waste-water treatment plant. Be certain to recycle the containers!
Toss them into the sink and they go to the treatment plant where the product degrades.





Drain, garbage, it doesn't matter.
