Recycle all Newell Brands’ home fragrance products and packaging through this program.
TerraCycle® and Newell Brands have partnered to create a national recycling program for all traditionally non-recyclable home fragrance products from Yankee Candle®, WoodWick® and Chesapeake Bay Candle®.
Did you know that some candle glass may be accepted through your curbside recycling program? Check out this page for more information on ways to upcycle, reuse, or locally recycle your empty candle jars!
Love our Fragrance. Love our Earth.
Please see below for what you can recycle through this program, and use the interactive map below to find a participating Yankee Candle® retailer where you can drop them off near you!
Participating in this program is simple and free. Please check your local recycling solutions for empty (no wick, wax, or lid) candle glass before sending.
If your local recycling solution doesn’t accept candle glass or there’s no participating Yankee Candle® store near you, join this program and download a label to send your collections to TerraCycle.
All Newell Brands’ home fragrance products from Yankee Candle®, WoodWick®, and Chesapeake Bay Candle®, including: candles, wax melts and melt cups, diffusers and refills, plug-ins and refills, room sprays, fragrance beads, and auto air fresheners and refills.
Once collected, the home fragrance products are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
Shipments in this program must be 15 pounds in order to receive points. For shipments over 15 pounds, 100 points per pound will be awarded.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each piece of home fragrance product and packaging from any brand you send in will earn you about 115 TerraCycle points. All brands of home fragrance products and packaging will be counted based on an average unit weight of 1.15 pounds.
