Crayons – Recycling

Crayons Accepted Year-Round at Hydraulic Road Recycle Center

Kids love coloring. Millions of wax crayons are worn out every year because kids color in books, on the walls, the floor, wherever they can be artful. So what happens to all the used or unneeded crayons? Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful thinks the broken pieces and stubs can have a second life! At the close of each school year (May 15 – June 15) we encourage crayon collections at home and schools while cleaning out backpacks and art supply bins.

Please email the or call 815-637-1343.
