Drowning In Old School supplies…How To Recycle Markers

As I am getting things ready for my kids to go back to school, I am looking at these boxes of used markers.

Each year I faithfully go out and buy new markers as per school supply list. Wouldn’t want my child to be the only one that does not have all new, still in fresh boxes, school supplies, now would I?

Every year I even go through the excercise of testing which markers are still good, but what to do with the bad ones? Are the commingled recycling? Trash?

Now here is finally a way to keep those old markers out of the general waste stream.

Crayola Company in PA together with JBI is turning these markers into fuel.
