Kitchenware and Utensils Zero Waste Box
Use this box to recycle your kitchenware and utensils, including any non-electronic appliance used for preserving, preparing, or serving food.
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, fibres, and plastics. Metals are smelted 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.
Please send us your discarded kitchenware including utensils, cups, mugs, plates, bowls, pitchers, trays, non-electronic can openers, bottle openers, soap dispensers, Tupperware plastic food containers, cutting boards, pots, measuring tools, pans, skillets, grills, steamers, and strainers.
include electronics such as toasters, disposable dishware or sharp items like knifes. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, coffee makers, 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.
