Automotive Small Parts Zero Waste Box
TerraCycle has created a zero-waste solution for all your automotive parts. Use this box to recycle any type of item, part, or accessory used to repair, maintain or enhance any automotive vehicle.
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 smelted 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 automotive small parts including serpentine belts, short shifters, funnels, windshield wiper blades, replacement parts, gaskets, hoses, wheel covers, exhaust systems, brake pads, license plates, covers, and mats. As well as any type of automotive racks including bike racks, ski racks, roof racks, kayak racks, bumper racks, and cargo carriers.
include car lithium ion batteries or racks with items still attached. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps.
