Banana peels are not recyclable. They are food waste and therefore must be composted instead of recycled.

If you are still not comfortable disposing of your banana peels try a few of the following:

    1. Shoe polish — bananas contain potassium which is a key ingredient in shoe polish. So give it a try. Rub it on your shoe and wipe off with a cloth for an extra special shine. You may smell like the potent fruit, but your shoes will look great!
    2. Make your teeth whiter – If it’s on Youtube it must be true.
