Quick Answer: Can LEGO boxes be recycled?

LEGO® bricks are designed to be reused and handed down through generations, but LEGO boxes and other packaging are often disposed of quickly. Some of our packaging contains single-use disposable plastic, which today, isn’t sustainable or in some cases able to be recycled.

Is LEGO plastic sustainable?

Should you flatten LEGO boxes?

If you want to keep them as pristine as possible, flattened is a better option. Unflattened boxes – especially the ones made of the new, thinner cardboard – can band and warp easily by simple things like heat and the humidity in the air. By having the boxes flattened and stacked they will stay as unchanged as possible.

Are Lego boxes collectible?

Boxes prior to the mid-’90s can be worth a fair bit, if they’re in good shape. A small number of more-recent boxes can be worth something. For most sets newer than 2000 and bigger than about 250 pieces, nobody is going to want them badly enough to pay what it costs to ship them.

Should I keep my Legos?
