recycledjarReCandle™ Recycling Program

Did you know you can earn unlimited credit toward your next purchase with us?

We have a strong commitment to the environment and have a rewards program that allows customers to recycle their candles and shipping boxes to earn coupons toward their next purchase!

Glass Jars & Metal Containers

Our recycling program allows us to reuse materials to help control the waste CandleTropics produces. When you return candle containers, you’ll get a credit towards a future purchase!

  • For every glass jar a customer returns to us in clean, reusable condition, the customer will receive $1 toward their next purchase via a discount code. For example, if you return 10 glass jars, we will send you a code for $10 off your next purchase. Jars must include original lids if it came with one, and have no damage.
  • For every metal container (“tin”) a customer returns they will receive a discount code for 50¢ toward their next purchase. For example, if a customer returns 10 candle tins, they will receive a code for $5 off their next purchase. All containers must include their original lids, and have no damage.

Cardboard Shipping Boxes

All the shipping materials we use are recycled and as much as possible, biodegradable. If we are forced to use plastic (like bubble-wrap), it is always reused (never new) and recyclable, and we avoid using plastic whenever possible. We have a program to accept returns of shipping boxes so we can reuse them for shipping, and reduce waste in our environment and keep shipping costs down. The boxes you return to us in this program do not have to be originally from us. We will accept any cardboard box in good condition, if it is the right size.

Most of the boxes we ship in are recycled Amazon boxes. They have a standardized sizing system identified by “Size Codes” marked on the bottom of each box. We accept boxes in sizes similar to the following: (in order of priority).

Amazon Size Code Priority L (inches) W (inches) H (inches)
1A7 1 14 8 7
1A5 2 14 11 5
1AE 3 13 10 8
C3 4 19 13 8
A1 5 10 7 3
E6 6 16 12 8
N3 7 15 11 5
1BB 8 19 15 12
1AB 9 14 9 6
A1 10 10 7 3
A3 11 13 10 3
K3 12 19 13 6

If your cardboard box isn’t from Amazon, that’s ok! We accept any box with sizes similar to that in the chart above. (A good rule of thumb is within an inch or two of each dimension.) As long as it’s similar size and in good, usable condition, we’ll reuse it! We will also accept medium and large USPS Priority Flat Rate boxes.

  • For every box you give to us to reuse, we’ll give you a discount code worth $1 to use on your next purchase. For example, if you return 3 boxes to us, your code will be worth $3.


Rules & Restrictions:

Everybody’s got rules and restrictions, but we’ll try to keep it to a minimum:

  • There is no limit to the number of materials you can return to us. As long as they are in good shape, meet the size requirements above, and reusable, we’ll take it!
  • Discount codes can be used online or in person. In person validation depends on working internet connection.
  • You must present discount code at the time of checkout. Credit cannot be applied to completed orders.
  • Our website inherently limits the use of discount codes to one per order. If you have multiple discount codes and would like to combine their value into one code to use on an order, please call us. We’ll be happy to combine your multiple codes into one.
  • Candle containers must have come from CandleTropics originally. Due to product standards and safety, we cannot accept jars or containers of other brands or types.
  • We reserve the right to change, alter or cancel this program at any time. If we do, we will still honor any credit you have already earned.
