DESCRIPTION

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Zero Waste Box™ Includes:
Color printed shipping box
Pre-paid UPS return shipping label
Processing of waste 

ACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please send us any discarded books and magazines, including novels, manuscripts, text books, cook books, comics, or any other type of bound reading material. 

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 shredded separating the paper (which is recycled) and the other material which is then further separated through hydropulping to allow it to be recycled.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not include eBook readers, or other electronic devices used to facilitate reading on an electronic platform. 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.
