HOW IT WORKS

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.

 

PROCESS

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into the various forms of plastic that make it up. The separated plastics then undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
