Put all of your non-recyclable and non-organic waste that is generated in your break room in the Break Room Separation Box to ensure that all of your break room waste is recycled.
Zero Waste Boxes Include:
Color printed shipping box
Pre-paid UPS return shipping label
Processing of waste
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.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into fabrics, metals, fibers, organics, and plastics. Fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products. Other materials, like glass or rubbers, will be recycled as appropriate to that category of waste. Please take note of what is recyclable in your local recycling system when using this program.
Please do not include unwanted coffee makers, appliances, or hardware. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as pressurized canisters, pesticides, oil based paint or medical sharps, organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers or expired medication. In addition, we also will not accept any item that is classified as sharps, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, toxic, infectious, or pathogenic.
