How it works

TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes allow you to recycle almost every type of waste. Simply follow the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet. 

What happens to your recyclables

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.

Accepted waste

Please send us non-rechargeable, spent alkaline batteries used in portable electronic devices. Please ensure that you place tape over the ends of the batteries to prevent any current transfer.

Please do NOT...

include any rechargeable lithium ion batteries, or any battery used to power a device not classified as a portable electronic device.
