Community Collection Hubs

​Interested in stepping up to become a real waste warrior and encouraging your community to recycle more? Join our network of Community Collection Hubs and make a real difference.

What is a Community Collection Hub?

A Community Collection Hub is a community recycling station and drop-off point for TerraCycle’s free recycling programs. These programs are funded by brands and are therefore completely free for any local business, community organisation or educational institution to implement. Collection and community involvement is key to strengthening recycling efforts and this is why our Community Collection Hub network is so important. By bringing your community together to keep more waste out of landfills, we can continue to promote the importance of sustainable living and empower greater change on a local scale. The more waste your community collects, the more TerraCycle points earned, and these points can be donated to a local school or charity of your choice.
