Can caravans be repurposed or recycled?
Is there a good use for old caravans or can they be recycled effectively?
I have disposed of two, and used one for raising chickens.
There was quite a lot of steel for the main chassis which went as steel scrap, and the outer skin is usually aluminium, but everything else is just a nightmare to dispose of, namely -
Rotten framing wood and thin plywood with lots of staples and nails,
Polystyrene - usually mouldy and broken.
Glass in aluminium frames.
Is there an effective means of disposal other than landfill?

The framed glass can be used to make cold-frames and greenhouses. You might be able to use carpeting strips to smother weeds between the rows of your garden.
