Thanks to our dedicated network of collectors, we have TerraCycle public drop-off points throughout the nation. Check the map above to discover public drop-off points near you—and see if your community needs you to start a drop-off point! It’s simple to start and manage a public drop-off point. As the administrator, you’ll choose the location, select which free recycling programmes to participate in, manage your public drop-off point, 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!
Starting a public drop-off point is easy! The steps to send in recycling from your public drop-off point are the same as if you were to collect privately. Plus:
•Your convenient public drop-off point 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 public drop-off point.
First, choose a good spot for your public drop-off point. 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 public drop-off point.
You will need to set up a collection box. The location should be open during daytime hours so people can access the collection box.
Join this program to be listed as a public drop-off point and open to the public in your area.
Encourage your customers, patients, members, and community to recycle and use your public drop-off point to help raise money for your charity. Useful posters and stickers are available to help you promote your public drop-off point.Browse resources
