ACCEPTABLE WASTE

Please send us any type of shoes including sandals, wedges, peep-toe, sneakers, flats, loafers, oxfords, clogs, boots, heels, wedges and five toe shoes.

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 fabrics, metals, fibers, and plastics. Fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. Metals are melted 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 unwanted stuffed animals, plush toys, doll houses, toy cars, or plastic packaging. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps.
