recycling question

Does anyone know if the plastic syringes that come with infantry Tylenol are recycleable? I have looked all over the interested and found nothing. I have a pile of them that i have saved and I'm tired of looking at them. I hate throwing away plastic since it is horrible to the environment!

Re: recycling question

I'm pretty sure the medication syringes are made of polyproylene. I could never find a recycling triangle label on them, so I doubt they are recyclable.

Put them on Freecycle or offer to a pet shelter. Wonder if they could be used to medicate pets?
