Hasbro offers toy recycling scheme.

Toy maker, Hasbro has become the latest major brand to offer a free, UK-wide recycling progamme for old toys.

The scheme will see old Hasbro toys, action-figures, dolls and board games transformed into materials used to make new products, including outdoor furniture and planters.

Hasbro owns a raft of household brands, including My Little Pony, Monopoly, Sesame Street and Playdoh. UK customers will be able to drop off their old toys at a number of public drop-off locations.

The launch of the recycling progamme follows the success of similar initiatives in Germany, the US, Canada and Brazil.

Hasbro has introduced other methods aimed at reducing plastic waste and its goal is to eliminate “virtually all plastic” from new products by 2022.
