Confirming the receipt of your box by the recycling processor
How it works
Rubicon’s mission is to end waste. We started Trick or Trash in 2019 with this goal in mind, sharing our passion for sustainability with each and every collection box delivery. The Trick or Trash box—and all its candy wrapper contents—goes on quite a journey!
Boxes are distributed
Schools and businesses around the country order Trick or Trash boxes ahead of Halloween. The boxes are shipped using the UPS Carbon Neutral Shipment program to ensure we keep the Trick or Trash carbon footprint very low.
Each box is filled up with candy wrappers (and only candy wrappers, please!), taped shut, and mailed back to the recycling processor using a pre-affixed label.
Boxes are processed
Watch the video to learn how the candy wrappers start their Second Life® as part of the circular economy.
