What Can I Recycle?
Arabic only Qur'an
Copies (Mushaf) can only be recycled by mailing to our locations. We make a distinction between Arabic only copies of Qur'an and other Qur'an copies that have Arabic and translations. The Arabic translation copies can be recycled in our Qura'nic material recycling bins. The Arabic only copies are:
- If possible, they are repaired and “recycled back to the community especially to those in need.
- Copies that cannot be fixed are burnt and not recycled.
Arabic Qur'ans with Translation or Commentaries
Arabic Qur'ans with Translation or Commentaries in different languages are not considered Mushafs and may be disposed in our Qur'anic material recycling bins or mailed to us.
Any Printed material with Qur'anic verses or Names of Allah
Any material from newspapers, postcards, flyers, completely destroyed books, magazines etc. Any paper printed material that has ayaat of Qur'an in Arabic or names of Allah in arabic should be disposed of in our Qur'anic material recycling bins or mailed to us.
