With Halloween just around the corner, Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful Inc. has developed a creative solution for all of the candy wrappers from trick-or-treating. Since they can’t be recycled, they have candy wrapper collection bins at the YMCA of Greater Toledo locations and the Toledo Zoo until November 15.

The wrappers will be sent to a special processor and sorted for recycling. This is the second year that the program ran. The first year of the program was a huge success, where over 200 pounds of candy wrappers were collected.

Candy packaged in small cardboard boxes like NerdsMilk Duds and Mike and Ikes, are the most environmentally friendly candies.
