Please note that correction (including Wite-Out® Brand) and free ink markers are not accepted.


Shipments in the BIC® Stationery Recycling Program must be at least 3 pounds to earn TerraCycle points. For all qualifying shipments, 100 points per pound will be awarded.

Awarded TerraCycle points can be allocated toward a variety of charitable gifts or redeemed as a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each writing instrument and packaging sent in will earn approximately 2.50 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of .025 pounds.
