FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lisle CVB Helps With Super Crayon Project

We will take the old crayons your kids don’t want or use anymore!

The Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau is partnering with SCARCE (School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education) and will be a central crayon collection location for used/broken crayons.  SCARCE will take pieces of broken crayons and make “Super Crayons.”  Using a crock pot, volunteers peel, sort, and melt the crayon pieces.  They pour the liquid crayon mixture into molds to form large crayons which can be used by children with disabilities. “What a resourceful way to take unwanted, broken crayons from filling up the landfills and recycle them into new crayons!” says Lisle CVB Bureau Services Katie Palombit. “Giants Steps and Lisle schools both have “Super Crayons” in their classrooms and the Lisle CVB wants to help with their supply.” 

A collection box will be located in the Lisle Village Hall lobby, 925 Burlington Avenue, Monday-Friday, 8 am – 5 pm.  Donations are accepted through October 30th. For more information, contact Katie Palombit, LCVB Bureau Services Coordinator at 630.769.1000 or email palombit@stayinlisle.com
