It’s in Your Hands to Save the Planet
This may come as a shock, but the fact that glue sticks can be recycled is actually a myth. The average school throws away around 2,000 used glue sticks every year, all of which are destined for landfill or incineration. That equates to approximately one full commercial waste bin, and that’s just one school! Adopt our eco refill and reuse system and stop sending glue sticks to landfill. Reuse, refill and rethink with ‘U-fill’, the most eco friendly glue sticks for school.

Watch this short video to learn how easy it is to reuse your glue sticks rather than sending them to landfill! Please note that the U-fill refills are only compatible with the U-fill brand of glue sticks.

The average school sends up to 2,000 glue sticks to landfill each year
Glue sticks are very hard to recycle because they are contaminated with glue residue and made from multiple types of plastic.
Refill to stop landfill
U-fill glue sticks are designed to be refilled, not thrown away. Keep your empty glue dispensers and replenish the contents with our refill canisters.
