Recycle Your Trophies in a Program that Supports Non-Profits

Total Awards & Promotions created a Trophy Recycling Program to benefit charities in need. Trophies and awards are being shipped to Madison from all over the country to be recycled, reused, and donated back to non-profits organizations.  The trophy recycling program has been an overwhelming success.  Thank your for your donations!  Remember, you can purchase the recycled trophies in our store or online which proceeds help the program keep going.  Thank you!
 
 
"We hear almost every day of folks that have old trophies collecting dust and they dont want to throw them away to the landfill; theyd rather make a useful contribution to others.  For over 20 years we have accepted these treasured awards and recycled them for parts or re-engraved and donated them to non-profits".
~Donna Gray, president of Total Awards & Promotions 
We encourage the community to donate their old trophies, plaques and awards (see specifications below on what we will accept) to support local non-profit organizations that are in great need in today's economy. This program will help local organizations who have cut their spending on appreciation, event awards, motivation trophies, and overall recognition. Quantity limits apply. Organizations should call 608-833-1716 to discuss their specific needs and how the program can work for them.  501c3 organizations can apply here for your FREE trophies (minimum of 2-3 weeks in advance and no more than 3 months).
