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 is mechanically and/or manually separated into fabrics, metals, fibres, and plastics. Fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. 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.

Accepted waste

Sport water bottles. Rackets (including broken parts such as strings, bumpers, and grippers), baseball bats, jump ropes, netting, swimming goggles, yoga mats. Cycling accessories: bike rims, handlebars grips, tapes and pads, reflectors, wheels, brakes, bells, baskets and seat covers. Skateboards, frisbees and boomerangs, hockey pucks. Disassembled fishing rods, fishing nets. Protective sports equipment such as helmets, knee and elbow pads, resistance accessories, straps, cones, mouth-guards.

Please do NOT...

UNACCEPTED WASTE: 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.

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.
