Every year, 125 million used tennis balls ends up in landfills and generates 20,000 tons of methane-producing and non-compostable waste. Methane is a greenhouse gas which is 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide. One tennis ball takes over 400 years to decompose. Our Mission is to repurpose or recycle 2 million used tennis balls by donating them to local animal shelters and senior centers, or recycling them via the Wilson Recycle Balls Program.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When will I receive the delivery of the balls/bin I requested?
Based upon availability. Usually around 3-5 days.

Unfortunately not at this time. We are currently focused on servicing the Central Jersey area. We plan to expand our service to additional locations in the future.
