PHOENIX — Ever wonder what you could do with those extra LEGO blocks that your kid might have outgrown? Maybe you’ve gotten tired of stepping on them around the house, cause let’s be honest, those buggers really hurt. LEGO will now recycle those blocks for you.

LEGO launched its new program LEGO Replay, and what they do is indicative of the name.

Here is what LEGO will do with them – clean them up and donate them through nonprofit organizations, Teach for America and Boys & Girls Club of Boston to get the blocks to classrooms for kids to use to learn by playing.

“Play has the power to change children’s lives. When children play, they learn how to problem solve, collaborate, and think creatively. By donating your used bricks, you can help share the power of play with children who need it most. Enter your information below to receive your free shipping label and together we can Rebuild The World.”

All you have to do is go on LEGO’s website and print out a mailing label and then dump your old blocks into a box or envelope depending on how much you have and it’s off.

“You can also visit one of our LEGO Stores to get a free shipping label or drop your donation off in person. The bricks you send will be sorted and cleaned before being donated to Teach for America or Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.”
