Processing of waste
Please send us your discarded kitchen gear including utensils, cups, mugs, plates, bowls, pitchers, trays, non-electronic can openers, bottle openers, soap dispensers, Tupperware plastic food containers, cutting boards, pots, measuring tools, pans, skillets, grills, steamers, and strainers.
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 metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
Please do not include electronics such as toasters, disposable dishware or sharp items like knifes. 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.
