Wristband Recycling Now Available!

Through our Wristband Recycling Program we gladly accept back unsold, unused, or just plain worn out silicone wristbands.  Once we have enough to fill a bulk bin, we send the silicone bands off to a recycling facility that specializes in silicone recycling.

Never ordered with us? Don’t worry! Our Wristband Recycling Program isn’t exclusive to our customers. If you’re reading this and have an old silicone wristband or three, send them our way!

Oh and did we mention the best part? When we receive your wristbands, we’ll send you a code for 10% off some new ones!

Once we have enough to fill a bulk bin (picture above) we send them off for recycling.

Wristband Recycling Program

To start, please remove any plastic bagging before sending in your wristbands, as plastic will disrupt the recycling process. Then ship the package to:

Wristband Bros 
ATTN: Recycling
1005 Main St #8130
Pawtucket, RI 02860

After you’ve done that, please email us (via this link) so that we can send you your 15% off promo code.

Once we receive them, we’ll store them until we have enough for bulk recycling by a third party partner. The end result of the process will have uses in multiple products, such as solar panels, insulation, lubricants and hydraulic fluid.

The most important thing is your wristbands won’t be wasting away in a landfill after you’re done with them!

Shipment Recommendations

As a general rule of thumb, if you are shipping enough wristbands to require a box, UPS Ground ought to be your cheapest option.

If shipping less than a box (standard mailer types), USPS.com is a great bet. If the shipment is under 1 lb, you qualify to use their First Class mail.

Please remember – The above recommendations are general guidelines only. It may be cheaper from your particular shipping location to use a different carrier or shipment method.

Tell us more about recycling, friend!

Silicone is a synthetic compound commonly made into rubber, oil or caulk. Because of its composition, it requires a special recycling process and can’t be tossed in the normal household bin. There are a handful of facilities that will accept it for processing, but the minimum quantity requirements are too high for most individuals.

We believe we have a duty to offer a way for people to recycle the products we make. Our program provides you with an alternative to throwing your used wristbands in the trash. Simply ship them to us and we’ll do the rest.

And remember – You don’t need to send us just 1 or 2 used bands. Some of our customers order 10,000 bands at a time (you know who you are!). We’ll accept any amount of used or unused product for recycling.

Once you’ve shipped out the old wristbands, it’s time to customize some new ones!
