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 send 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 fibres and plastics. The fibres (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

  • Empty crisp packets and sweet wrappers

Best practices for recycling
