Yakima’s Halloween Hangover! What To Do With The Wrappers?
Okay, so it’s November 1st. You’ve awoken from an amazing, spectacular, stupendous night of Halloween trick or treating that will go down as legendary in the halls of your mind. The heartburn from too many peanut M&M’s is getting to you, but the pain is a pleasant reminder of the epic night you had celebrating. You sit up on the floor, barley remembering that you passed out there. Not from a hard night of drinking or drugs, no, but from the candy coma that was induced by fun sized snickers, bite size Reese’s peanut butter cups, and the regular sized Starbursts that they just package much smaller and only give you two squares per treat. The candy is all gone, and you’re just covered in wrappers. Sure it was a good blanket for passed out you, but now awake you has to figure out what to do with the mess of wrappers. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO? Or if you’re like most people and had a normal amount of fun on Halloween and find yourself with candy wrappers throughout the next couple days, the question still remains… WHAT DO YOU DO?
Most people would just throw the wrapper away, leading those wrappers to eventually end up in landfills. Luckily the Mars candy company has partnered up with Rubicon to help out and recycle those candy wrappers as part of their Generations Plan. The program is called Trick or Trash!
How Does It Work?
It’s pretty simple, you request a special Trick or Trash bag from Mars. When you’re done enjoying the candy, put the wrappers back in the bag. Securely seal up the bag and take it to the nearest USPS box, and then your job is done! Simple as that.
Update On Trick Or Trash
As of this writing, the Trick or Trash program has run out of their special bags for this year, but this is something to definitely keep in mind for next year. It has been a big success for the past few years and looks to continue to do so. For more details on this program, visit Halloween.Mars.com.
