  What does CFK do with the items collected?


All of the items on our price lists are recyclable.


CFK believes that re-use is the best form of recycling. The items collected are remanufactured
or refurbished for resale. Re-use prevents the pollution that results from the manufacture of new items and the decommission of used items. Re-use requires less consumption of natural resources.


If items are too damaged for re-use, they are broken down and the raw materials are recycled. All end-of-life recycling takes place in the United States.
  Is this program year-round?
Yes. We encourage participants and business supporters to send items during holidays and summer months.
