Put all of your non-recyclable and non-organic waste that is generated in your garage and outdoor areas in the Garage and Outdoor Separation Box to ensure that all of your garage and outdoor waste is recycled.
Zero Waste Box™ Includes:
Color printed shipping box
Pre-paid UPS return shipping label
Processing of waste
Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase from http://zerowasteboxes.terracycle.com. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once your box is full send it back to TerraCycle to be recycled. When we receive it we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
The collected waste is mechanically and hand separated into fibers (like wood and coated paper), fabrics (like cotton), metals, plastics and other materials. The resulting fibers will be hydropulped to separate out coatings (like wax and plastics). The separated fiber will be recycled into new paper products, or composted if recycling is not possible. The resulting plastics will be recycled into plastic polymers. The separated fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. Metals are smelted for steel making. Flexible and rigid plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be moulded into various recycled plastic products. Other materials, like glass or rubbers, will be recycled as appropriate to that category of waste. Please take note of what is recyclable in your local recycling system when using this program.
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.
