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 ship 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 fabrics are segregated into their respective categories (such as nylons, cottons etc.) and then either reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Do not include electronic heating blankets, leather or delicate fabric (made out of polyester, nylon, silk, rayon, cashmere). 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.
