Use this bag to recycle any type of non-recyclable paper packaging. Then ship any combination of bags to TerraCycle using a (separately sold) Zero Waste Shipping Box.
Zero Waste Bag
Processing of waste
Please send us your non-recyclable laminated paper beverage cartons from milk, juice, lemonade, and iced tea. We will also accept laminated paper packaging and cartons from ice cream, sherbert, sorbet, gelato, popsicles, broth mix, pasta, rice, and ice pops.
When you receive your bag fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, place the bag in your separately purchased Zero Waste Shipping box, with any other full Zero Waste Bags. Once your box is full, bring it to any FedEx location to ship your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid FedEx 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 shredded separating the paper (which is recycled) and the other material which is then further separated through hydropulping to allow it to be recycled.
Do not include basic paper packaging or organic material. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps.
