Kitchen Gear Zero Waste Box™
TerraCycle has created a zero-waste solution for all your kitchen gear. Use this box to recycle your kitchen gear, which is any non-electronic appliance used for preserving, preparing, or serving food.
The Zero Waste Box program allows you to recycle almost any type of waste. Simply follows the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibers, and plastics. 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.
Please send us your discarded kitchen gear including utensils, cups, mugs, plates, bowls, pitchers, trays, can openers, bottle openers, soap dispensers, Tupperware, cutting boards, pots, measuring tools, pans, skillets, grills, steamers, and strainers.
include electronics such as toasters, disposable dishware and silverware, sharp items like knifes. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps.
