Recycling Tips from the Niantic Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

Rather than allow flammable dryer lint to accumulate in the dryer duct, clean dryer vents and use lint as a backyard fire starter instead

Don Brusseau suggests tips for the recycling enthusiast. Plenty of lint accumulates inside a dryer and vent system and since it is so flammable, why not use it to start a fire in the back yard fire pit?

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard ( suggests more uses for dryer lint. Dryer lint can also be used as stuffing for small toys or other craft items. Birds, mice, squirrels and other small animals can use the dryer lint for nesting material. Hang it outside in a mesh bag and they will be happy to carry it off and put it to good use.

The dryer is so easy to operate that even a child can do it so parents should motivate children to clean the lint screen after every load.
