Books and Magazines - Zero Waste Box™

WHAT IS THIS ZERO WASTE SYSTEM?

The Books and Magazines Zero Waste System allows you to recycle books, magazines, notebooks, and journals. This includes spiral-bound notebooks, fully bound books, manuscripts, text books, cook books, comics, or any other type of bound reading material.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

  • A Zero Waste Box to be used for collecting and shipping, complete with sturdy plastic liner
  • Return shipping (the label is already affixed to your Box)
  • The complete processing and recycling of your waste (see how your waste is recycled)
  • A Zero Waste Consultant to address any concerns and answer any questions

HOW IT WORKS

  1. SELECT | Please choose the size of Zero Waste Box you'd like to purchase. 
  2. COLLECT | When you receive your Box, fill it with the appropriate waste streams (listed above). Once full, ship your Box back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid, pre-affixed shipping label.
  3. RECYCLE | When we receive your waste, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.

    IMPORTANT RESTRICTIONS
