Unwrap the Waves - October 17th - November
Did you know that Americans buy over 300,000 tons of candy for Halloween? Those "fun-sized" wrappers end up in landfills or as litter. The City is partnering with Loggerhead Marinelife Center to make sure wrappers get recycled! In 2021 the Unwrap the Wave campaign recycled over 700,000 candy wrappers.
How can you participate?
From October 17th through the first week of November bring your clean candy wrappers to either Gumbo Limbo Nature Center or Sugar Sand Community Center and put them in the designated collection bins. After the campaign is over Loggerhead Marine Life Center will collect all the wrappers and send them to be recycled with Terracyle.
