Pens, Pencils and Markers Zero Waste Box™
TerraCycle has created a zero waste solution for pens, pencils and markers. Use this box to recycle pens and pen caps, mechanical pencils, markers and marker caps, permanent markers, and permanent marker caps.
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 metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
Please send us any pens, pen caps, mechanical pencils, markers, wooden pencils, marker caps, permanent markers, and permanent marker caps.
