At Castle Balloons we offer a recycling programme for all of our own balloons. The latex balloons are recycled into the rubber recycling program. All the foil balloons are taken apart and reused by wrapping other decor.
Our customers can also put their latex balloons in the compost pile in their own garden.
If the balloons are not recycled, then they should always be popped and put into the bin. All balloons, as with any other product, must be disposed of responsibly.
