If you are a parent, chances are you are very familiar with the broken toy situation. It was working perfectly fine and suddenly a bit of extra force from your little one made a tiny little piece of plastic break off and now it has become completely useless. Let's face it - most toys these days are made of cheap and flimsy plastic parts that make their life-span shorter than a house fly. 

 

Fortunately, many companies have established successful recycling programs that can help divert broken/worn toys from the landfills. Parents can help these recycling programs stay alive by participating in them and spreading the word around communities. 

 

 

Plastic Toy Pollution

Recycle or Donate: Depends on condition

Most organizations that take toy donations require that they are clean, without critical missing parts and functioning. If your toys are broken, please don't donate. Choose a responsible recycling option.
