WHAT IS INCLUDED

Color printed shipping box
Pre-paid UPS return shipping label
Processing of waste 

ACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please send us your discarded, non-electronic office tools such as tape desk organizers, card and document filers, binders, calendars, labels, pens, pencils, markers, staplers, hole punchers, dividers, paper cutters, and correction supplies. As well as fasteners including paper clips, staples, and binder clips, and discarded backing from sticker and label 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 metals, fibers, and plastics. 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 office e-waste, like electronic staplers and label making machines. 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.
