University Campus Clean up

At TerraCycle, we recycle items that aren’t recycled kerbside. Join us and become a recycling hub by sending us your hard-to-recycle rubbish. Inspire your students, staff and unions to build a more sustainable future and get a £5 bonus for your university or charity of choice!

Recycle with TerraCycle to help your university’s pledge for sustainability by encouraging your community to drop off accepted items from our many recycling programmes. This will help you reach your sustainability goals and prevent hard-to-recycle rubbish from ending in landfills while getting rewards for your university.

How It Works

  1. Create a TerraCycle account for your university.
  2. Join our free recycling programmes. See our participating programmes here!
  3. Set up a public drop-off point at your university. 
  4. Spread the word and let your students, faculty members, staff and the wider community know they can help recycle rubbish that can't typically be recycled kerbside. 
  5. When your collection box is full, download a free shipping label for each programme and send us your rubbish to be recycled.
  6. You'll receive TerraCycle points to redeem as a monetary donation to your university or charity of choice.
