BIC® Stationery Free Recycling Program

Recycle all brands of writing instruments and packaging

Discover Our Recycling Process

Once collected, the writing instruments and packaging are cleaned and separated by material. Plastics and fibers are recycled into raw material, and metals are smelted and used to make new products. Marker ink and fluff, which cannot be mechanically recycled, are processed through waste-to-energy and used by the processing facility directly and/or the local utility network. Click here to take a virtual tour of our processing facilities.
