Hasbro teams up with TerraCycle to give toys and games new life

Hasbro teams up with TerraCycle to give toys and games new life

Hasbro, Inc., the global play and entertainment company, recently launched a new toy and game recycling pilot program with TerraCycle, a global leader in product recycling. During the pilot program, consumers can collect and send their well-loved Hasbro toys and games to TerraCycle, who will recycle them into materials that can be used in the construction of play spaces, flower pots, park benches, and other innovative uses.

 "Hasbro's toy recycling program is the first brand-sponsored national recycling program in the industry, and we are proud to partner with the passionate team at Hasbro to offer consumers a simple, sustainable solution for recycling their well-loved toys and games," said Tom Szaky, CEO, TerraCycle.
 
Though toys and games are technically recyclable, the high cost of recycling the mixed plastics contained in these products makes it impractical. The Hasbro Toy Recycling Pilot Program aims to overcome this obstacle and builds upon Hasbro's longstanding commitment to sustainability, a key focus area of which is reducing the environmental impacts of products and packaging. This program aligns with that initiative, diverting valuable plastic material from the non-recyclable waste stream.  

"We're excited to launch the Hasbro Toy Recycling pilot program because it aligns so well with our purpose to make the world a better place for children and their families," said John Frascotti, president, Hasbro, Inc. "As a company, we know consumers share our commitment to taking care of our planet for future generations, and we see this as an exciting step in our sustainability journey."
 
Consumers in the contiguous U.S. can visit www.hasbrotoyrecycling.com to sign up. The pilot program is open to all Hasbro toys and games, including face-to-face games, plastic and electronic toys, action figures, dolls, plush, and more.
