The Original Crayon Recycler
Please Donate Your Unwanted Crayons
Crayons are petroleum products that take many years to biodegrade.
MORE THAN 12 MILLION CRAYONS ARE MANUFACTURED EACH DAY!
Just think for a moment, “How many dumpsters does that fill?”
The National Crayon Recycle Program recycles unwanted, rejected, broken crayons into new crayons, keeping thousands of pounds out of landfills and back into the creative hands of children!

This recycling education and community service has made it possible to stop more than 170,000,000 pounds of unwanted crayons from going into landfills with the help of schools, organizations, educators, and kids across this country.
You compassion and generosity has also helped bring smiles to children in need around the world!
