True or false? New York Bed Bath & Beyond’s Have Candle Recycling

Have you seen people on social media say that Bed, Bath & Beyond has a candle recycling program? At first I thought this was genius. I already use a bunch of my old candlesticks to hold other things throughout the house, why not take my extra timber back to the store?

Most people do not already do that with soda? Return the cans and get the deposit back? Let’s return our old empty light glasses and get a discount on new ones (like the empty printer cartridges at Staples) or just do something good for the environment. That sounds like a perfect plan. So perfect, I had already started picking out the new candles in my brain.

Then I did a little research.

No, Bed, Bath & Beyond does not have a candle recycling program. What were people talking about online? On Facebook and TikTok? Well, people were essentially talking about how they ‘worked’ the return policy on Bed, Bath and Beyond to bring back light (which they said were defective) to return the candle they had bought and get a whole new light without to have to pay extra money.

People on the net referred to it as ‘recycling’. I can see if there was a problem with the wick or the light had a legitimate defect. Not exactly sure (apart from a wick problem) what might be wrong with a candle, but is this an abuse of a company’s return policy?

Should people be allowed to do this? Or is it because people shop at a particular store because they know they can manipulate policies for their benefit?
