We’ve Got Valentine’s Day Licked: Recycling Your Very Used Sex Toy


Surely scattered amongst that heap of trash, waiting to be compressed and re-organized into neat cubes, are sex toys.  Broken vibrators, unused and used butt plugs, tired dildos.  And I know you’re thinking, Gee whiz, if we don’t do anything about all these old sex toys, they’re just going to pile up in our landfills!  And leak bodily and toxic chemicals into our soil and water!

This does not have to be our future, people.

Instead of wrapping your old, non-functional toy in ten black plastic bags and tossing it in the trash, you can instead recycle it at 69 Adult Toys [link totally NSFW] in Tarzana.  And by “recycle,” I do not mean to imply that the store will clean it and sell it as a “refurbished” toy.  No, no, no.  A toy is nothing more than the sum of its parts, you see?  All the plastic and electronics can be broken down and recycled, just like any other, uh, toy.  The plastic from yesterday’s vibrator will become the plastic on tomorrow’s Tupperware; the electronic components will be safely recycled as e-waste.

All you have to do is clean your toy, place it in a plastic bag so you can show them what you have (they’d rather not touch it, thankyouverymuch), and bring it in.  In exchange for being green, they will give you a 10% discount on your in-store purchase that day (limited to one discount per day) – sort of like bringing in your used ink cartridges to Staples and getting a discount on new ink. 69 Adult Toys carries a line of eco-friendly toys, so if you really want to get off guilt-free, put that discount to good use and buy something green.

Wall-E and our future generations thank you.
