At the toy library we believe in recycling! We have many different items that our members can recycle at the toy library. Members of the toy library have volunteered to make this possible for all members! Take a look at what we take, print this out or bookmark the page for future reference.
What We Recycle at the Minneapolis Toy Library:
Cereal bags (Terracycle program)
Crayons (The Crayon Initiative where they turn them into brand new crayons and give them to children in hospitals)
Textiles (we have volunteered to be a non official hub to bring textiles, which are then brought to the Hennepin County drop off facilities where they recycle the materials)
