Recycle Your Halloween Candy Wrappers!

Each year millions of candy wrappers are needlessly discarded and end up in landfills. TerraCycle® is proud to partner with Mars®, Wrigley®, and Cadbury® to create a second life for candy wrappers. Every time you enjoy a candy product, we want you to save the wrapper and send it in! For each approved candy wrapper received, your Collection Location will be awarded two TerraCycle points which can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or for a payment of $0.02 to the non-profit organization or school of your choice.

Cub Scouts collecting candy wrappers

Cub Scout Pack 140 and Elizabeth Lane Elementary School are teaming up to raise money for the school with discarded candy wrappers. Mars, Wrigley and Cadbury candy companies have launched TerraCycle, a recycling project that gives schools 2 cents for every wrapper collected. The Cub Scouts and the Elizabeth Lane Green Team ask that students – and community members – bring candy wrappers from M&Ms, Snickers, Starburst, Swedish Fish, Twix and Skittles to the receptacle located in the school’s main lobby, located at 121 Elizabeth Lane in Matthews. The fundraiser will run through Nov. 4.

Through a TerraCycle program called the Candy Wrapper Brigade, which awards points for each wrapper collected, the Center for the Performing Arts wants to accumulate enough points to provide clean drinking water for a year to a family of four in a developing country. Patrons attending Center for the Performing Arts and other presentations at Eisenhower auditorium are encouraged to place used candy wrappers in lobby collection boxes. Eligible waste -- from auditorium concession sales or from home or office use -- includes individual candy wrappers, large candy bags and multi-pack candy bags.
