Why rescue crayons?
Our Super Crayon Project diverts crayons from going to the landfill! After removing whole crayons that can be reused, we recycle the broken crayon pieces into “Super Crayons.” Volunteers help sort, peel, and melt the broken crayons. The liquid crayon mixture is poured into molds to form large crayons in a variety of shapes which can be used by children with special needs.
Thank you to all who bring us crayons and to those volunteers who spend time on this project.
- We can reuse the oil from the crayons
- We can help kids with special needs
- We can prevent crayons from entering our landfills
- It's creative & fun!
Donate Your Crayons
We’ll take your old crayons. Drop them off Tuesday-Friday 9am-2pm. View our full donation policies and procedure. P.S. Careful – crayons can melt in a hot car!
You can help with our Super Crayon Project! Collect and sort crayons at your home or school and then schedule a time to bring them to SCARCE. If you want to take it a step further, see our directions for sorting and peeling crayons.
