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.
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 shredded, separating the paper (which is recycled) and any other material (such as wax and plastics), which is then further separated through hydropulping to be recycled.
Please do not include basic paper packaging. 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.
