Why Recycle Crayons? Crayons are a petroleum product that take many years to biodegrade.
More than 500,000 pounds of crayons are discarded every year in the U.S. alone!
Just think for a moment, “How many dumpsters does that fill?”
CRAZY CRAYONS and the National CRAYON RECYCLING PROGRAM has been in the crayon recycling business for over 24 years! Their crayons color just like any other crayon, because they don’t add or take away anything in our recycling process. CRAZY CRAYONS are non-toxic, because they go through an extensive sorting process to use ONLY crayons certified with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
