Toys for Joy

Toys for Joy Recycling

We’re recycling old toys to help build more joy for kids in need.

At BIG W, we know as families grow, children tend to grow out of their old toys, and with few options to recycle them, they often end up in landfill. That’s why, as part of our sustainability journey, we are excited to be launching Toys for Joy - our old toy recycling initiative which is currently in 111 stores and will be available in all BIG W stores by 26th April.

We’ve partnered with TerraCycle to recycle your old toys, to contribute to a joyful future. This includes making play experiences for kids, because we believe all kids should be able to play, discover and let their imagination run free. 

So, do you have old, broken toys cluttering up your home? Don’t bin them, donate them at your participating BIG W. Just drop them into our Toys for Joy chest in store, where all donations get passed onto our partner, TerraCycle to be given a second life.
