Many municipalities work with TerraCycle to provide a public program for recycling cigarette butts and other difficult-to-recycle waste streams. TerraCycle can work with your municipality, organization or business to help your community start a recycling program.
TerraCycle can work with you, your city government, individual organizations, events, and businesses to set up public or private on-site recycling programs for waste streams of your choice. Although cigarette waste is the most common waste stream cities are recycling with us, we also offer a variety of other programs that we can work with you to recycle.
If you are located in the Northeast, please reach out to our Route Logistics/Commercial Services Team.

Our Commercial Services program provides an easy, on-site recycling opportunity for a wide range of businesses. In addition to single-stream recycling, Terracycle provides recycling options for a unique variety of other traditionally non-recyclable waste streams such as gift cards, poly film, and other site-specific waste streams. Detailed recycling metrics for program partners are also provided to show recycling progress.
To get your city involved, start by contacting our Strategic Partnerships Department.

Through a custom-built program, you and your community can work together to create a network of collection locations to reduce waste as well as fundraise for local schools and charities. TerraCycle can help you set up collections in public locations to begin recycling waste from the residents in your city. Some examples are:
Visit or contact your local school district, community organization, or public institution to determine if they are already recycling difficult-to-recycle waste streams through TerraCycle. Or just look for TerraCycle recycling boxes, or Zero Waste Boxes at these locations. And below you can find a list of cities that currently have a cigarette recycling program in partnership with TerraCycle. Each municipality has publicly accessible cigarette recycling stations for waste to be deposited. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about these programs.
