Do you think recycling LEGO is a good idea?


18th October 2019

LEGO is trialling a new recycling scheme for unwanted bricks.

The LEGO Replay scheme, which is only taking place in America to begin with, will encourage people to send their bricks back so that they can be used again.

Rather than being put back into the company though, the bricks will be cleaned and donated to a non-profit group called Teach For America. The group will then distribute the bricks across schools and clubs, so that pupils can play and learn with them.

If the scheme proves a success, LEGO says it will introduce it in other countries too.

What do you think?

This is a good idea! As well as contributing to save our planet, this gives opportunities to young people to improve their imaginations and teamwork skills.

Yes because people might not want their lego anymore and they don't have any relatives but they care about the environment so recycling it is a good option.

no, because collectors could lose valuable pieces or minifigures.

This looks like a really helpful and useful way to recycle Lego, it would be really good if they did it in lots of different countries and not just in America because then they can help even more children.

I think yes because loads of people have lego so it is a great idea to help save the environment

There's no point in throwing lego away if someone else can use it.

irock122 · 1 year ago

I think they should do this because it’s saving the environment and children will love playing with it.

I think recycling Lego is an amazing idea as it is one of the most used toys in the world and is very popular.It's great that LEGO are trying to help save the planet too.

I think recycling LEGO is a very good idea because loads of people use lego, get bored with it and throw it away in the waste, not the recycling, and that is harmful for the environment and earth.

Who said no? I mean even if you do have valuable pieces or collect them you can keep the ones you want and recycle ones you don't want

I think it’s a good idea because people just chuck it away!
Or give it to a charity shop!

I think it is a good idea because some people don’t have any Lego because they can’t afford it and then when they go to their school, they can play with the Lego

by the way clever clog on my screen cat heaven was first to comment but I guess that on your screen it must have been different. However back to the poll YES it is a good idea

Yes, because if you don’t it will be a waste of plastic and toys. It is a really good idea.

I agree with everyone

Of course! Too many people just throw things away without even thinking that they could be reused, reduced or recycled.

I think yes because lego is made of plastic which is bad for the environment so reusing would help our planet!!!

bamboomilk · 1 year ago

Yes, of course! It is plastic after all, isn't it? If it is plastic, recycle it!

wireskid · 12 months ago

YES! You are finished with it. Why landfill when you can recycle?!

wireskid · 12 months ago

Recycling helps save the planet, but wasting is terrible when you can recycle.

wireskid · 12 months ago

Waste of money too!
