Brickrecycler MAIN BANNER

Many ask, “How do I recycle or donate my pounds of mixed up LEGOs!”

Updated: September 26th of 2016

Just donate your used LEGOs to us (mixed up or in sets), and we will make sure they are reused! Simply put in a plastic bag, put in a box, and send by FedEx Ground or UPS Ground.  Sending all in one box is less expensive than shipping in many smaller boxes. You can also email us to let us know you are sending some to us if you like.

Donate Legos

YES, we are still actively accepting LEGOⓇ donations, and need more pieces now. Our shipping address is current, but may change in 2017, so just refer to this web site for our current address.

We have many more requests for LEGOs than we can fill right now.  And we receive more one-time requests constantly. One example is many pounds of used pieces to bless children at an orphanage in Zimbabwe .  More examples are listed below. One of our latest ventures is to team up with Compassion International to help children in Brazil.

Here is another program that we are super excited about. It’s the “Build Your Journey” program through Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. This program was and inspiration by, Donald, a young leukemia patient. He recently beat this deadly disease, and instantly had a deep desire to help other kids that are still in the battle.

His dream is that kids would receive a small set every time they undergo treatment, or take a step toward recovery, since the process is so difficult.

BrickRecycler.com accepts donations of new and used loose LEGO bricks, figures, and sets. Simply put them in a bag, then in a box, and ship to us via UPS Ground or FedEx Ground. There are more packing tips here

Did you know LEGO pieces are not marked with the recycling symbol, and are a mixture of “Type 7 Plastic” (ABS) and other materials. If you dump them in your recycle bin your city will need to sort them out, and then just dump them in the landfill.

Unfortunately most thrift shops end up dumping these unless they are in complete sets in the orignal box. Many other nonprofits don’t know what to do with mixed up pieces.

We carefully sort LEGO brand pieces to match the type of pieces with what happens to be needed at the time (e.g. wheels, space themed, robotics, etc). We prepare them to make them available to kids and clubs who can enjoy the thrill of these pieces for the first time, or find those “missing pieces” they are longing for.

We shipped off over 130 lbs for kids in Haiti! Watch the video on YouTube for the awesome Hope for Haiti drive for Donating LEGOs.

Here are some other organizations we have worked with to help them spread the love of learning and building, by finding the parts they need, when they need them.

  • Help One Child and Compassion (for foster children)
  • Countless Children’s Organizations
  • Orphanages in Mexico and Honduras
  • Hands of Hope (for Zimbabwe orphanage)
  • Camp Opportunity (for at risk kids)
  • Dozens of Libraries and Clubs
  • Many of children and adult “artists and architects”
  • World History Classes taught with LEGO
  • A short film of LEGO
  • Children with Autism
  • Schools serving underprivileged children
There is no need for you to do any special sorting by color, etc, but it’s helpful to take out non-Lego items. Thanks for making a difference by passing these on to future builders. Please help spread the word to others by linking to our site, or “Liking” us on FaceBook. www.FaceBook.com/brick.recycler
We bought some brand new Disney Princess Friends sets to send to an orphanage in Honduras from Amazon at 40% off list. We are planning on doing the same for the Marine’s Toys For Tots, and Sleep Trains’ toy drive for foster children. Last Fall we donated a large amount of school supplies for foster children via Sleep Train.
We get requests constantly. Here is just one example of one recent request:
“Hi Brick Recycler, I used to be on the Board of a local non-profit that services most of the schools in Providence, RI.  They have an after school Science Program and they are in desperate need of LEGOs for one of their projects.”
Many teens have developed leadership skills by organizing a local Lego drive, and sent the pieces to us. That’s wonderful. We would like to spread the word that we fully support this.

JANGBRiCKS helped us out so much with the following donation. These were sold to buy brand new sets for kids with Leukemia!

Should I save Legos for the grandchildren? Yes, if they are already born, but probably not if your kids aren’t even married. It’s always easy to get bulk Legos on eBay or Craigs List or citywide garage sales. New sets come out all the time, so your grandkids might enjoy a theme that hasn’t even been invented yet.
