Eyewear - Zero Waste Box™
Use this box to recycle spectacles, glasses, swimming goggles, sunglasses, or other protective eyewear.
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.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, glass and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The glass is melted and recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.
Please send us your unwanted or broken spectacles, sunglasses, glasses, safety glasses and swim goggles.
include eyeglass chains, cases, wipes, any goggles with a fabric strap (i.e. ski goggles), contact lenses, contact solution or eyewear cleaning products. 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.
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.
