Gardening Products - 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 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 and plastics. Metals are smelted for so they may be recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.
