Break Room Separation Zero Waste Box™
TerraCycle has created a zero waste solution for break room waste. Use this box to recycle any items used in the break room including plastic packaging, coffee capsules and disposable cutlery.
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.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into fabrics, metals, fibers, organics, 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 organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
Please send us any discarded coffee capsules, dining disposables, straws, plastic stir sticks, coffee and tea accessories, plastic packaging, paper packaging, and laminated paper packaging.
include unwanted coffee makers, appliances, or hardware. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps.
