Become a Community Collection Hub

Would you like to see your community recycle more? You can start your own TerraCycle Community Collection Hub—a community hub where people can drop off their rubbish to be recycled through TerraCycle’s free recycling programmes.

Please let us know if you find a location that is no longer active by emailing us at

Our Community Collection Hub Network

Thanks to our dedicated network of collectors, we have TerraCycle Community Collection Hubs throughout the nation. Check the map above to discover Community Collection Hubs near you—and see if your community needs you to start a Community Collection Hub! It’s simple to start and manage a Community Collection Hub. As the administrator, you’ll choose the location, select which free recycling programmes to participate in, manage your Community Collection Hub, and send collected rubbish to TerraCycle (with prepaid shipping labels) to be recycled. Share duties among a group of friends so it’s even easier!

What is a Community Collection Hub?

Starting a Community Collection Hub is easy! The steps to send in recycling from your Community Collection Hub are the same as if you were to collect privately. Plus:

•Your convenient Community Collection Hub will encourage your community members to recycle rubbish that would otherwise end up in landfills.

• By combining your recycling with that of your community members, you’ll be able to send in larger shipments that are more efficient to transport and process, further reducing your carbon footprint.

• You’ll earn all the TerraCycle points for the rubbish you send in from your Community Collection Hub.

How to Start a Community Collection Hub

First, choose a good spot for your Community Collection Hub. It should be located in a popular, easily-accessible area (for instance, a library, a community center, a place of worship, or a retail store). Unless you own or manage the location, make sure you have permission to set up the Community Collection Hub.

You will need to set up a collection box. The location should be open during daytime hours so people can access the collection box.
