Do It Yourself:
Coconut Husk Fiber – Introduce these fibers into an environment that is suitable for composting. They are 100% plant based and will decompose entirely. Remove them from the metal wiring with a pair of plyers.
Wooden Handle – Remove the metal wiring. Similar to what happens in a natural environment, rubber wood will completely decompose but the amount of time this takes is dependent on things like soil composition, temperature, and the size and density of the object, amongst others. Time frames can range from a few months to a few years. Breaking it down into smaller pieces can accelerate the process of decomposition and this is recommended before introducing it into an environment that’s suitable for composting.
Metal – check to see if it can be recycled with your city or residential recycling program. If not, collect with other scrap metals and take to a scrap yard when it is convenient for you.
Brush and handle combined have a length of 12.5″. Brush has a diameter of 1″ until it reaches the tip at which point the diameter is 2″.
