Sports Medal Recycling

Sports Medal Recycling is a group of athletes that recycles extra, unused or no-longer-wanted road race, endurance event, sport and academic medals.

We use the recycling proceeds to make donations to non-profit fundraising minimums for road race bibs or charity endurance event entries.

If we are not actively fundraising for our own entries, then we make donations to support other athletes that are fundraising.

Our service is free and open to any individuals, race directors or event organizers that wish to recycle with us.

We are an all-volunteer team, from the medal processing/recycling to website maintenance to donation distribution to tax filing.

This is a complete recycling program.  We recycle the cardboard shipping boxes, and any newspaper, paper or cardboard used in shipping.  We recycle the metal from the medals.  We send the ribbons to textile recycling.  All plastic bags, air mailer bags and bubble wrap go to plastics recycling. We have a 99% recycling rate (1% of items we receive cannot be recycled).

Help keep recyclable metal, textiles, plastic and cardboard out of landfills and help support some great 501c3 nonprofit organizations.

Receiving Status: We are ACTIVE and can receive medals at any time. Thank you!

About our Fundraising Efforts- Where the Recycling Proceeds Go

We regularly participate in charity-organized endurance events or road races, or we fundraise for a charity to get entry (a race bib) into established road races such as marathons. If we are not actively fundraising for events, then we donate to other athlete’s fundraising efforts.

We only make donations to fundraising efforts that support registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations in the United States only. We do not make donations to requests to help individuals, teams or businesses.
