Sustainable Solution for Candle Recycling with CheckSammy

What do you do when you have many candles you need to dispose of? Throwing them in the garbage is terrible for the environment as they’ll end up in the landfill. But with so many components, candle recycling can be a challenge.
 Here at CheckSammy, we have an entire process in place for candle recycling. For some of our customers, we debrand and donate overflow candle inventory. For others, we source-separate, donate the wax, and recycle the tin cover, wicks, glass, and cardboard packaging. We then send a complete report of all the recycled parts back to our clients.

Got questions? We've got answers

Have questions about candle recycling? We can help. Here are some common FAQs plus answers to help you get rid of your candles responsibly.

get in touch

Yes, of course you can! Read the Case Study above to see how we recycled every single part of a candle - the jar, wax, lid, wick and more!

Many ways, but typically we break the glass jars, melt down and siphon off the wax, and remove the wick, tin and lid.

Heat! We heat it up to melt the wax away, but if you're looking to do it at home, putting it in the freezer helps to separate the wax from the jar.
