Recycle LEGOs by Donating LEGOs. We pay for shipping!

People donate cars, boats, and even houses to charity. Why not donate those old Lego’s that are collecting dust? Bricks For A Cure is a non profit that was started as a way to take a great toy and put it back to good use once a child no longer plays with them. Due to the type of ABS plastic they are made from, LEGOs shouldn’t be put in land fills and can’t be recycled. But they still can be put to good use.

We decided to collect donated LEGOs and sell them to children who would love to play with them.  We then use all the proceeds for children’s cancer related causes. We believe its incredibly unfair for children to be stricken with Cancer, and even more unfair if they can’t pay for the treatment they need.  

It couldn’t be easier to help.  Simply request a free shipping label, send those old, no longer used LEGOs, and we will do the rest. We will even sort out the non LEGO brand and then clean and repackage them! You will truly be putting those donated LEGOs to good use!

Why LEGOs?

People have asked why we collect and resell  donated second hand LEGOs as a way to raise money for kids Cancer treatment. LEGOs are actually the perfect item for this type of program.

LEGOs are probably one of the most educational and creative toys ever created. But every year millions of LEGO pieces go unused as children outgrow them. On the other side of the coin are children who want these great LEGOs but cannot afford them. Collecting and reselling no longer used LEGOs gives children who may not be able to afford new LEGO sets a chance to buy great LEGO items at a discount. We make sure the pieces offered are all in great condition and are clean and sanitized.

To go even further, LEGOs are made of an ABS plastic and are very small which makes them virtually impossible to recycle LEGOs. It also makes them not safe for landfills as they don’t break down. The better option is to reuse/repurpose them.

Put this all together, and raise money to help kids afford the Cancer treatments they need and deserve, and you have the perfect choice in LEGOs.

We hope you agree and will help our cause by donating any unused LEGOs you may have and by spreading the word about Bricks For A Cure.

Thank you!

Q: Can I recycle Legos?

A: Legos really can’t be recycled. The type of ABS plastic used, along with the small size makes it nearly impossible to recycle legos. They generally will end up in a landfill where they will not break down. The best way to recycle second hand legos is to actually “repurpose legos” meaning let another child enjoy one of the greatest toys ever made!!
