Recycle Ticonderoga, Prang, and Lyra art supplies and writing instruments through this program.
TerraCycle® and Dixon have partnered to create a free recycling program for Ticonderoga, Prang, and Lyra art supplies and writing instruments.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: Prang Art Markers, Ticonderoga Highlighters, Ticonderoga & Dixon Pencils (mechanical and wood), LYRA & Prang Paint Kits, Prang Crayons, Prang Glue Sticks, Prang & Dixon Erasers, and Prang & LYRA Colored Pencils.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed.
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 formats that manufacturers use in new production, 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.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
