Join our mission to end waste

Research shows that in the United States alone, more than 600 million pounds of candy are purchased each year for Halloween. The vast majority of candy wrappers end up in landfills due to an inability by most curbside recycling programs to recycle them. That’s where Rubicon comes in.

By participating in Trick or Trash™, you don’t have to trash those candy wrappers and doom them to an eternity in a landfill—or, even worse, in our oceans. Using one of our custom candy wrapper recycling boxes, you can help keep our planet clean and contribute to the circular economy.
