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 will undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into various recycled plastic products.

Accepted waste

Please send us any brand yogurt, sour cream, cheese, cream cheese, butter, margarine, whipped topping and pudding tubs, lids, foil tops and plastic seals.

Please do NOT...

include plastic fruit cups or plastic food storage bags and containers. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurised canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your local council system.

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 a variety of brand partners to make our recycling solutions available, for free, to people around the world. If you represent an eco-curious company, please visit our Business Development Area.
