HOW IT WORKS

Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to send your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.

PROCESS

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into fabrics, metals, fibres, and plastics. Fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The fibres (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not include baby clothing or fabric, baby diapers or any baby toy with electronics/lithium ion batteries. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurised canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your local council system.
