Can I send my broken crayons to you for recycling?

We do not currently offer a program for recycling broken crayons sent to us by consumers. Because our #1 goal is to provide safe, high quality Crayola products, our raw materials must adhere to high standards and pass strict screening tests. Unfortunately, we would not be able to introduce "recycled" crayon wax into our mixtures, and still be able to guarantee the safety and performance of Crayola crayons.
