Recycle used writing instruments through this program.
TerraCycle® and Newell Rubbermaid®, have partnered to create a free recycling program for used writing instruments as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: Pens and pen caps, mechanical pencils, markers and marker caps, permanent markers and permanent marker caps
Once collected, the writing instruments are separated by material composition. The separated items are then cleaned, shredded, and made into new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
