Where to Recycle Wine Corks: WCI Weds

It’s Philly Beer Week Ya’ll!

Although I enjoy a good local brew, I’m also a huge fan of wine.  Wine bottles are recyclable and you can find local and/or organic wines easily. But what should you do with those damn un-recyclable wine corks?

Not sure where to recycle your wine corks?

Good news – there’s a few options for you!

Where to recycle your wine corks:

  • Whole Foods has a wine cork recycling drop off!
  • Terracycle‘s Cork Brigade has a solution – as they say,  one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. They’ll take your unwanted natural wine corks, synthetic wine corks & cork stops and turn them into shiny “new” cork boards.  (It says they have zero open slots for this project, but they can open up in the future!)
  • Recork has wine cork drop-off locations at the Philadelphia zoo in South Kensington (1301 N 2nd St
    Phila, PA 19122) – so you can visit a neighborhood or pet some animals and recycle the wine corks.
  • Create your own Corkboard!
