BIC has just announced a new partnership with TerraCycle, a company that offers free recycling programs (funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers) for hard-to-recycle waste.
Through the BIC Stationery Recycling Program, U.S.-based consumers are now able to send in “all brands of pens, markers, mechanical pencils, highlighters, glue sticks, watercolor dispensers and paint sets” to be recycled for free. The program also takes the soft, flexible plastic packaging that some writing instruments are packaged in. Customers sign up online and are provided with a prepaid shipping label for the items they want to send in.
