Our vision is to collect, melt and recycle used crayons and give them a new life! By diverting waste from landfills, we plan to educate both the youth and the general public on the importance of environmental intervention - in an effort to protect the earth we all inhabit. As a non-profit project, proceeds from selling the crayons will go towards covering basic operating costs while the rest will be directly donated to the youth of our province. We call upon all parents, youth and caretakers to donate all crayons you no longer have use for to this project.
Stay tuned for more information as this project evolves!

Do they need to be peeled?
No! Our team will take care of sorting and peeling the crayons.
Do the crayons have to be in a certain type of container?
For the convenience of our community, we are happy to announce that collection containers can be provided upon request. Depending on one's schedule, a collection team can be dispatched to empty the containers.
What Covid precautions are being taken?
Collection containers are made of a durable metal with a plastic lid to allow for fast and efficient sanitization. Lids will be able to be secured in place with a crayon slot for both theft and safety reasons of children. Upon collection, crayons will be stored for a minimum of five days and heated to a temperature that will kill all bacteria and virus particles.
