Crayola ColorCycle-Turn Markers into Energy
Valentine Hills is partnering with Crayola to recycle used markers. Crayola ColorCycle is an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills!
The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles.
Please support our efforts by bringing in any used markers you may have around the house—even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included. A drop-off box is located in the front lobby.
Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like YOU, the Crayola ColorCycle program will continue to keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year. All used markers that are collected will be packaged and sent in for recycling on Friday, June 7.
Remember, don’t throw out your used marker—ColorCycle it!
