DESCRIPTION

Use this box to recycle any flexible or rigid plastic packaging.

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Zero Waste Boxes Include:
Color printed shipping box
Pre-paid UPS return shipping label
Processing of waste 

ACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please send us any type of plastic packaging material incuding food or condiment packaging such as plastic bottles, food storage and takeout containers, cereal bag liners, plastic wrap, and plastic shopping bags. You may also send bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts, air packaging, pallet covers and shrink wrap.

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 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 waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into the various forms of plastic that make it up. The separated plastics then undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not include any plastic with paper stickers and remove the contents of all food packaging before sending. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurized canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes.
