Processing and Recycling of waste

ACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please send us your spent alkaline batteries. Please ensure that you place tape over the ends of the batteries to prevent any current transfer.

HOW IT WORKS

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.

PROCESS

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into chemical, metal and plastic. The chemicals are removed while salvageable metal and plastic are recycled. 

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not include any rechargeable lithium ion batteries, or any battery used to power a device not classified as a portable electronic device. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurized canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your municipal system.
