2022 Crayon Recycling Program

The Village is excited to announce the 2022 Crayon Recycling Program! Many people may not know, but crayons are a petroleum product that can take many years to break down in our landfills. Every year, up to 75,000 pounds of broken crayons are thrown away across the country. In an effort to redirect this material from the trash, the Village is launching its Crayon Recycling Program where we will collect broken, used, and unwanted crayons and send them to SCARCE for their Super Crayons Program.

Bring your crayons to one of our drop-off locations. You can help prep the crayons for recycling by removing its paper wrapper prior to drop off. The Village will send all crayons collected to SCARCE for recycling. Thank you for your efforts!
