How it works

Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to ship your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.

What happens to the waste?

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibres, and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The fibres (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.

Accepted waste

Please send us any AB printing spools and scrap printing material generated by your 3D printer. 

Please do NOT...

send in 3D printers, 3D printer parts, traditional printer cartridges or 3D prints of any material other than ABS.  Printing materials made from PP, PE, PS and PTEG may be collected in our Plastic Packaging Zero Waste Box

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. paint from paint tubes). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping.

Help make this nationally recyclable

We work with brand partners to create recycling solutions that enable consumers to recycle their products and/or packaging for free. If you represent an eco-minded company and are interested in working with us, please contact customersupport@terracycle.co.uk.
