Recycle Dixon, Ticonderoga, Prang, and Lyra art supplies and writing instruments
Yes, this free recycling program is brand-specific, which means you can only recycle the packaging from Dixon brands Ticonderoga, Prang, and Lyra.
Dixon has sponsored this free recycling program, so there is no direct cost to you.
We encourage you to ship when your box is full of art supplies and writing instruments to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.
No, you do not need to clean the packaging before dropping it off, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping.
Earn TerraCycle points by recycling with us! You can redeem your points in the form of a donation to a school or charity of your choice. Thanks to the recycling efforts of our collectors, we've raised over $45 million dollars globally for schools and charities through our recycling programs.

Once collected, the Ticonderoga, Prang, and Lyra art supplies and writing instruments 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.
