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.
