Recycling Centers and Green Teams are Key to Earth Month Collections

Our recent outreach has resulted in more recycling centers and green teams stepping up to conduct gently used plastic toy collections! Fair Lawn Recycling Center and the River Edge Green Team have been collecting for years and serve as proven model programs that keep thousands of toys out of our landfills and allow us to reach many more children. Because of the strength of these programs, we are now beginning to attract interest from other towns. And why not?  The benefits are real, and there is no reason why toys should be tossed, when so many children go without them.  

While the Green Teams inspect, sort and clean the toys they collect, Second Chance Toys will bring in volunteer teams to do the same at the recycling centers. We then match up their huge collection with multiple local organizations that serve children in need and arrange for transportation of the toys.  

We are proud to recognize the towns that have joined in to help children and the environment:

- Fair Lawn Recycling Center

- River Edge Green Team

- Paramus Department of Public Works

- Hoboken Green Team

- Westfield Conservation Center

- Windy City Green Team

Thank you!
