WHAT IS THIS ZERO WASTE SYSTEM?
The Laminated Paper Packaging Zero Waste System allows you to recycle non-recyclable paper and cardboard packaging (ie. paper or cardboard with a waxy or plastic coating). This includes laminated paper beverage cartons from milk, juice, lemonade, and iced tea as well as laminated paper packaging and cartons from ice cream, sherbert, sorbet, gelato, popsicles, broth mix, pasta, rice, and ice pops.
WHAT DO YOU GET?
- A Zero Waste Box to be used for collecting and shipping, complete with sturdy plastic liner
- Return shipping (the label is already affixed to your Box)
- The complete processing and recycling of your waste (see how your waste is recycled)
- A Zero Waste Consultant to address any concerns and answer any questions
HOW IT WORKS
SELECT | Please choose the size of Zero Waste Box you'd like to purchase.
COLLECT | When you receive your Box, fill it with the appropriate waste streams (listed above). Once full, ship your Box back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid, pre-affixed shipping label.
RECYCLE | When we receive your waste, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
Do not send in non-laminated paper packaging (which is typically recyclable at curbside).
Please read our additional restrictions.
WHY? Each Zero Waste solution is custom-built for specific waste streams. Additionally, our Zero Waste System must adhere to standard shipping regulations.
