RESCUE + RECYCLE plastic toys this year with the Second Chance Toys annual toy drive. Second Chance is a 501(c)3 non-profit which rescues unwanted plastic toys in NYC that are gently used and distributes them to children in need through local community organizations, while at the same time, helping the environment. We've got a list of drop off locations.
Toy rescue and collection efforts will coincide with the year-end Holidays during November and December. Find a program and drop-off location nearest you for recycling your gently used plastic toys (PLEASE NOTE: Only clean plastic toys in good condition are accepted! Any battery powered toys need to be fully operational. Kindly help us by following these requirements. Toys that don't adhere to this policy will be rejected).
