With hundreds of millions of plastic PVC gift cards purchased, redeemed and exchanged every year, the question many people ask is: Are gift cards recyclable? Yes, they are. Since plastic gift cards aren’t biodegradable or usually accepted in curbside recycling bins, the next thing is to send your batch of depleted cards to Earthworks Systems for recycling. Earthworks grinds up the old cards and makes them into giant sheets of plastic to be used for new products. Send your gift cards (and canceled credit cards) to Earthworks Systems, 33200 Bainbridge Rd., Suite E, Solon, OH 44139.
