The goal of the Collection Expedition is for collection locations to compete with one another to collect the most waste in each Brigade.

Collection packages checked in by TerraCycle between those times will have their contents tallied for the Collection Expedition. Winners will be announced on or before December 9th, 2011.

How Does A Location Win The Collection Expedition?

Winners will be determined by the number of waste units collected and checked in by Terracycle within the contest timelines. All locations within each eligible Brigade will compete against the other locations within their Brigade to achieve the greatest increase in total units collected during the competition timeframe relative to their 2010 collection totals. (2010 Collection totals include units checked in by Terracycle between January 1st, 2010 at 12:00am EST and December 31st, 2010 at 11:59pm EST. Units collected are calculated according to the average unit weight listed in each Brigade’s FAQ posted on www.terracycle.net.
