Crayon recycling offered by Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful
Online Staff Report
Instead of throwing away those old or broken crayons in the trash, how about recycling them? Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful (KNIB) will take your old crayons and remold them into colorful shapes and give them to hundreds of children.
Crayon recycling will be available between 9 a.m. and noon, Saturdays, June 8 and 14, at KNIB Recycle Centers at 4665 Hydraulic Road, Rockford, and 13125 N. Second St., Roscoe, Ill. Crayon recycling is also available at the KNIB Office between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, through June 15. The KNIB Office is at 5417 N. Second St., Loves Park, Ill.
