Let’s face it — everyone loves LEGO!
Kids love it. Adults love it. Heck, I’m in my mid 30s, and I still get a new LEGO set each Christmas!
From Ninjago to LEGO Friends, from the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre to the upcoming The LEGO Movie, these building blocks and their increasingly popular minifigures continue to foster creativity, problem solving and fun.
Here at Halton Region, we are occasionally asked how to dispose of unwanted LEGO.
While it is made of plastic, unwanted LEGO can’t go in the Blue Box. Remember, the Blue Box accepts rigid plastic packaging, not plastic products. But we don’t want to see LEGO in the garbage, either.
The best option is to reuse it by passing unwanted LEGO on to someone else. That’s one of the amazing things about LEGO — regardless of whether it is brand new or thirty years old — the pieces are still compatible, they all fit together.
You can also donate unwanted LEGO in good condition to your local branch of the Burlington Public Library, Halton Hills Public Library, Milton Public Library and the Central Branch of the Oakville Public Library. Libraries use LEGO as part of their community programming.
