Candle Recycling

Every year tonnes of used candles and unwanted wax are binned and sent to landfill.  That's bad news for the environment and such a waste.

KICA Living is all about wasting less and reusing more, which is why candle recycling is a no-brainer for us. All our unsold candle stock and wax leftovers are melted down and recycled to make beautiful new pillar candles.

Wax recycling donations wanted!

Donations of used wax in all shapes and sizes are most welcome. We take used wax from individuals and businesses, including wedding designers, florists, cafes and events venues.

What can we recycle?

  • Pillar candles of all sizes
  • Taper / dinner candles
  • Shaped candles
  • Plain and coloured wax leftovers

If you are a regular candle user and want to recycle wax leftovers in a more eco-friendly way, get in touch to discuss candle recycling.

Note: We do occasionally reuse good quality glass candle containers too, but would ask that you recycle any plastic wrapping or metal casings in your normal household recycling bin as we don't have the capacity to handle this extra waste.
