Put in Garbage Cart/Bin

If your tarp doesn’t fit in your garbage cart/bin with the lid closed, schedule a junk pickup.

Ways to Reduce

Use Old Billboard Signs Instead

If it’s time to replace an old tarp, consider a recycled billboard sign. Billboard Tarps, Billboard Vinyls and other online sellers offer old, waterproof billboard signs at competitive prices.

Ways to Reuse


Cut Up Your Tarp

If your tarp has reached the end of its life, but there are sections that are still sturdy, you can cut the tarp up into smaller squares. They work well as cat litter liners, planter box and pot liners, and other household projects. If you’re feeling crafty, try upcycling your old tarp into a sturdy waterproof beach bag with these instructions from Alisa Burke.

Donate or Repurpose It

If your tarp is not worn through, you can donate it, or repurpose it into countless ideas. Slip N Slides, hammocks, camping tools and backyard compost covers are just a few. Check out the TarpsPlus blog for more ideas.
