As people get ready to close their pools for the season and pack away supplies for the cooler months, they'll likely come across old inflatables that have seen better days and are ready to be retired. Funsicle®, a fast-growing outdoor recreation brand within the Polygroup® family, has partnered with international recycling leader TerraCycle® to announce a limited-time* recycling event for well-loved inflatable pools and floats that are ready to be given a second life.
Beginning September 4, consumers can send in all brands of deflated pools and floats to be recycled by TerraCycle through the Funsicle Inflatables Free Recycling Program. Participation is easy: download a prepaid shipping label at https://funsicle.com/terracycle and mail in the deflated pools and floats through October 4, 2023.* For each pound of inflatables returned, the recycler earns one dollar toward charity gifts or cash donations to a school or non-profit organization of their choice.
"At TerraCycle, we are all about having fun, but not at the planet's expense," said Tom Szaky, TerraCycle Founder and CEO. "Through the Funsicle Free Recycling Program, fans of the inflatable pools and floats can easily reduce waste without sacrificing the enjoyment of their summer fun."
The Funsicle Inflatables Free Recycling Program is open to any interested pool owner, individual, school, or community organization. Once collected, the floats and pools are cleaned, shredded, and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
