Processing and Recycling of waste

ACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please send us your discarded safety gloves, dust masks, garments, hairnets, beard nets, ear plugs, face masks, shoe covers, hard hats and safety glasses.

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 any rechargeable lithium ion batteries or tools. 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.
