Please send us brooms, mops, buckets, dry cleaning pads, wet cleaning pads, dust pans, empty spray bottles, empty detergent bottles and nozzles, empty cleaning product bottles, lid tops, and dryer sheets.  

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 fabrics, metals, fibers, and plastics. Fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate.  Metals are smelted so they may be recycled.  The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted.  The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not include aerosol cans or solvent/hazardous material such as drain cleaners, oven cleaners, toilet cleaners, disinfectants, degreasers, all purpose cleaners, detergent, bleach and fabric softener. 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.
