Every Halloween, many families end up with extra candy. Halloween candy could come from kids trick-or-treating and getting too much (on average each trick-or-treater consumes 3 cups of sugar!), or it could come from adults who overestimate the number of trick-or-treaters they will get and are left with candy they hope to not get tempted by in the weeks ahead.
Ridwell will pick any extra candy up so it can do good in the community. Instead of getting stale in your cupboard, leftover candy from your home will go to great local partners working on important missions.
While what we take in this category varies by city, here is what is generally included.
We work with local partners to bring new life to your stuff. From community reuse to grassroots recycling, we make sure it stays out of the landfill.
Every organization in our partner network is dedicated to reducing waste and making a meaningful contribution to our communities. Learn more about how we vet our partners and what partners we work with in your area on our blog.
