Recycle your Fantasy Fest beads here:
Purchase recycled beads at the MARC Plant Store/1401 Seminary Street
Pricing is 30-pound bags for $35. At this time there is no pricing for specialty beads.
Some new enhancements to our program
We will have a group of volunteers following Saturday’s parade collecting the used beads for recycling so if you’re in the crowd and don’t want your beads...let us donate them for you!
We will be placing informative cards in select hotels explaining the bead recycling program to the guests and ask them to kindly leave any unwanted beads in their room and the housekeeping staff will collect them for us.
