Hasbro collecting recycled toys to build park equipment

Posted at 3:23 AM, Apr 20, 2018

One of the largest toy manufacturers in the world, Hasbro, is launching a massive recycling program that allows families to ship their old toys for free.

Hasbro is partnering with the company TerraCycle for the program. TerraCycle collects the old toys and games and processes them into raw materials that are used to build park benches, playground equipment and flower pots.

Right now, the pilot program applies to Hasbro brands only. Hasbro has dozens of toy and game brands including:

  • My Little Pony
  • Mr. Potato Head
  • Play-Doh
  • Nerf
  • Tonka
  • Littlest Pet Shop
  • GI Joe
  • Care Bears

After collecting old toys to recycle, families can print a free shipping label online and send the toys to TerraCycle to be processed.

You can find out how the program works and get started on a shipping label on the Hasbro toy recycling program's website.
