Candy Wrappers are not recyclable in your curbside recycling containers or at Lucas County drop off locations?

As you can imagine, this means that a lot of candy wrappers are going to make their way to the landfill this Halloween Season.

To make matters worse, many wrappers don't actually make it to the landfill at all. Instead they become litter, lining our neighborhood streets and washing into our rivers and lakes.

Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful aims to change this. In partnership with the Board of Lucas County Commissioners, the City of Toledo, and Civil & Environmental Consultants,Inc. we will be collecting candy wrappers this Halloween Season. Once collected, we will be send them to Terracycle ( a company that specializes in recycling hard to recycle items.

If you would like to help us in recycling candy wrappers, diverting these from the landfill or from becoming litter request your Candy Wrapper Recycling Box today! 


Collect your clean candy wrappers at home and drop them off at one of these locations to be recycled.  Collection ends on November 15th!
