Zero Waste Box™ Includes:
Color printed shipping box
Pre-paid UPS return shipping label
Processing of waste
Please send us all varieties of used coffee or tea discs from any capsule-specific coffee or tea machine.
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 mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, organics and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
Please do not include used tea or coffee filters, loose coffee grounds, electronics (coffee makers) or anything else other coffee or tea accessory. 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.
