Staples Box that Rocks Contest

Recycle all pens, mechanical pencils, markers, highlighters and permanent markers through the Staples Recycling Program!

Does your school collect writing instruments to be recycled with Staples Canada and TerraCycle? Your school could win two outdoor garden beds and a picnic table made from 100% recycled plastic, as well as a $1,000 donation to any school or non-profit organization of choice!

How it works

The TerraCycle team will select a group of finalists that demonstrate the highest level of creativity while communicating the recyclability of writing instruments. Between December 9 and December 28, the public will be able to vote for their favorite collection box to select the final winners. 

Prizes

The top three winning schools will receive the following prizes:

  • Grand Prize: Two (2) outdoor garden beds and one (1) picnic table made from 100% recycled plastic; a $1,000 donation to any school or non-profit organization; and a $300 grant check for garden supplies
  • First Runner-up: A $500 donation to any school or non-profit organization
