Crayon and Marker Recycling with Jackson County Conservation

Do you have a sad old shoebox with old crayons sitting on a shelf?  How about those questionable markers in the back of a desk drawer?  Clear them out and give them new life.  Jackson County Conservation is working with the Crayon Recycling Program and Crayola to provide a way to recycle these items.  In a landfill, a standard crayon make take up to 100 years to decompose and marker barrels can take thousands.  The crayons are sorted by color, melted and the wrappers are skimmed off and sold as fire starters.  The crayon wax is poured into molds to make more crayons, available at .  Markers have the ink wadding and tip removed then the #6 plastic barrels can be converted to a fuel to primarily run generators.

Crayons and markers can be dropped off at the Hurstville Interpretive Center and at Imagine the Possibilities.  Other locations are welcome to start their own collections in collaboration with JCC efforts.  Additional information and questions? Contact Jen at 563-652-3783  or
