HOW IT WORKS

Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase from http://zerowasteboxes.terracycle.com. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once your box is full send it back to TerraCycle to be recycled. When we receive it we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.

 

PROCESS

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, glass and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The glass is melted and recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not include eyeglass chains, cases, wipes, contacts, contact solution or eye wear cleaning products. 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.
