Contact Lenses and Packaging Zero Waste Box
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.
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.
Contact lenses, plastic film, pods, empty solution bottles.
UNACCEPTED WASTE: Cardboard packaging, hazardous waste (sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, toxic, infectious or pathogenic) which presents a danger to the environment or to people. Batteries, pressurised canisters, broken glass and medical waste.
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.
