Instructions

If your photos are newer, digital prints, they can go in your recycling bin along with paper. If your photos are older and needed to be developed, they are a landfill item.

Alternatives

Consider keeping old photographs to use for a new art project, or create a photobook or scrapbook to preserve your photos and memories.

Facts
