Office Supplies / Stationery - 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, 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.
Small office supplies such as pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, staplers, hole punchers, clips and clamps, disposable and reusable tape dispensers, glue sticks, rubber stamps, correction fluid bottles and other correction supplies. Filing and archiving supplies: plastic file dividers, plastic folders, file pockets, business cards holders, binders.
UNACCEPTED WASTE: Wooden pencils, electronic waste (i.e. electronic staplers, label-making machines), laminated paper-release liner from labels. Hazardous waste (sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, toxic, infectious or pathogenic) which presents a danger to the environment or to people. Batteries, pressurized 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.
