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 metals and plastics. Metals are smelted for steel making, and plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products. Any salvageable e-waste is refurbished and re-used. All data is completely wiped from applicable e-waste, but we ask that you restore your device to factory settings prior to sending in.

UNACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please do not send loose lithium ion batteries in this box. 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.
