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.

“Students loved sharing the information with their peers, seeing others participate in their project, and being able to help the earth.”
“The box was a talking point for us at various candy giving functions in our community. The box was a fun and unique way to bring recycling education to a moment in time.”
“It is so easy to participate. Low cost and low barrier to entry is critical to drive participation in conservation related activities.”
